On March 23 1783, Mozart gave an important concert in Vienna’s Burgtheater; having organized it himself, he pocketed the proceeds. The concert, which was a huge success and played to a packed house including the emperor Joseph II himself, featured a programme—detailed in a letter Wolfgang sent his father Leopold—which would be considered bizarre by the standard of our own day. In it, a host of disparate works including concertos, arias and works for solo piano were sandwiched between movements of his celebrated Haffner symphony, with the first two movements opening proceedings and the last two bringing the concert to a close.

The Camerata gives us the flavour of this legendary concert in a wonderful evening filled with the magic of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s music. Recalling the structure of the 1783 concert, the programme includes the masterful symphony No 29, framing: the violin concerto No 4, the famous Serenada notturna for two orchestras and timpani, the aria "Ah! Lo previdi", and the wonderful concerto for piano No 12.

Camerata, with the magical sounds of period instruments, connects the past with the future, and promises an unforgettable musical experience and... surprises!
