ECO in Norwich: Grier plays Mozart

19:30 Norwich Cathedral

David Parry is joined by Savitri Grier for a programme devoted to masterworks from late 18th century Austria.

Haydn nicknamed his Symphony No.44 the ‘Trauer’, or ‘Mourning’. It is suitably melancholy and austere in places, dramatic and passionate in others: sturm und drang at its most eloquent. Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5, on the other hand, is spirited and serene by turns with a great lightness of touch. The composer nods to Bach in the intense and introspective Adagio and Fugue, but is back with irrepressible energy in the Symphony No. 29, an essay in joie de vivre.
