In the movie Amadeus, the composer Salieri speaks of the Adagio of Mozart’s Gran Partita as a moment “of such delight it had me trembling. The light flickered in the room. My eyes clouded!” Under superb British clarinettist Michael Collins, this sumptuous, elegant work is part of a spellbinding collection of Mozart masterpieces, including the concerto voted Australia’s favourite by ABC Classic FM listeners.
Graham Abbott will present a talk on the artists and works featured in the program.
