The Mozartists were created in 2017 by conductor, Ian Page, as a natural extension of his pioneering work with internationally renowned opera company, Classical Opera.
Classical Opera is best known for its current series, Mozart 250, in which they perform each year the operas and music that Mozart and his contemporaries composed 250 years ago. Comprising many of today’s leading period instrumentalists, The Mozartists perform alongside some of the world’s most exciting young singers.
In this concert, The Mozartists present a wide- ranging selection of works by Haydn, including a piano trio, songs, duets and some of his most delightful folksong settings, interspersed with two dramatically charged A minor sonatas by Mozart and Koželuch, played on the fortepiano by Steven Devine.
