The next events in our partnership with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment are pre-concert talks by Robert Samuels of the OU Music department, before the orchestra’s programme ‘Mozart’s Final Flourish’.
The concerts present the composer’s last three symphonies (No. 39, K543 in E flat; No. 40, K550 in G minor; and No. 41, ‘Jupiter’, K550 in C), which were all written in two months over the summer of 1788. The talk is titled Pure Inspiration or Self-Promotion? and is free to attend.
The concerts take place at The Anvil, Basingstoke, on February 6 (talk at 6:30 pm) and at the Southbank Centre, London, on 7 February (talk at 6 pm). Students can obtain tickets for the concerts at the special rate of five pounds, through the OAE box office.
Full details of the concerts can be found on the OAE website.
