Mozart was not only an undeniable genius but a prolific one too, leaving a legacy of over 600 hummable works, from gentle solo piano lines to blasting symphonies.

This carefully curated palette of pieces intentionally shows off the composer’s incredible range, starting with just a few musicians and gradually building to a vivacious symphony, complete with oboes and horns. Join us to experience the many shades of Mozart, from the delicately intriguing to the rarely performed to the downright sparklingly brilliant.
