‘1773  – A Retrospective’
17 January 2023 – Wigmore Hall, 7.30pm

Ian and The Mozartists continued their 25th anniversary season at Wigmore Hall on 17 January with a concert entitled ‘1773  – A Retrospective’.

This entertaining and illuminating selection of works composed in 1773 began with one of Mozart’s most genial middle-period symphonies, No. 27 in G major, K.199, and ended with his first enduringly popular masterpiece, the motet “Exsultate, jubilate”, K.165. In between, Haydn’s famed horn writing takes the instrument to the almost ridiculous extremes of its compass in his Symphony No. 51 in B flat major. Soprano Alexandra Lowe, making her eagerly anticipated company début, sang arias by turns dramatic, lyrical and virtuosic: “Zwischen Angst und zwischen Hoffen” from Schweitzer’s Alceste, “Potea quel pianto” from Mysliveček’s La Passione di Gesu Cristo, and  “È la pompa un grand’imbroglio” from Haydn’s L’infedeltà delusa. Abel’s Andante un poco Adagio from Symphony in A major, Op. 10, no. 6 served as a welcome encore.

Listen to Ian introduce the concert.
