Imagine this. The year is 1783 and you’re a fashionable Viennese aristocrat, so of course you’ve heard of Mozart, the 27-year-old genius lighting up music halls across the continent. He might even be your piano teacher. Someone tells you that he’s got something new planned, so you show up to the palace theatre in your newest fit. As the concert starts, you note that the Emperor is in attendance – a good sign. If you could, you’d live tweet the whole thing.
Two hundred years later, you can! It’s LMP’s 75th birthday this year, so they’re recreating this iconic 1783 concert. It features many of Mozart’s greatest hits including the “Haffner” Symphony and Piano Concertos No. 13 and No. 5. Joined by soprano Anna Prohaska and pianists Imogen Cooper and Martin James Bartlett, LMP will transport you back to Vienna, 1783, for one night and one night only.
