Mozart & Haydn: Celebrating Genius

Queen Elizabeth Hall

London Mozart Players
LMP 70th Birthday Season
Howard Shelley Piano/Director

Haydn Symphony No.95
Mozart Piano Concerto No.25 in C K.503
Haydn Piano Concerto No.11 in D
Mozart Symphony No.35 in D K.385 ‘Haffner’

Directing from the piano as his eighteenth century counterparts would have done, Conductor Laureate Howard Shelley leads the orchestra in a programme highlighting the genius of these celebrated pioneers of the Classical era. A generation apart, Haydn was the generous mentor with Mozart his appreciative pupil. Their friendship, forged through their mutual passion for musical innovation, transcended jealous rivalry, and rather than compare the two composers, we should simply celebrate their genius.
