Mozart & Papa Haydn

Mostly Mozart


An hour of wonderful music and the chance to catch up with friends over a cup of tea.

Classical masterpieces performed by the orchestra of the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) and acclaimed guest artists.

Mozart composed only six works for the convivial combination of piano, violin and cello, one of the most popular home entertainment genres among the dilettantes of Vienna around the turn of the 19th century. Intended to be played in ‘friendly, musical, social circles’ according to the composer, our final Mostly Mozart concert serves as a fitting occasion. Indeed, the young Mozart and the older Haydn used to play chamber music together. Haydn’s ‘Trauer’ symphony with its tense opening movement with fierce contrasts of dynamics and one of Haydn’s most remarkable finales brimming with nervous energy concludes a year of music at its very finest.
