Mozart’s Fantastic Flute

Classical to the core, with music by Schubert, a Mozart flute concerto and the spirited Linz symphony.

Our Associate Principal Flute Emma Sholl is the star in one of Mozart’s delightful flute concertos. This is music that sparkles and dances with 18th-century flair – as much fun to hear as it is to play. You’d have no idea that Mozart claimed to dislike the instrument! The concerto is framed by a Mozart-inspired overture from Schubert and Mozart’s high-spirited Symphony No.36. Mozart had arrived in Linz to be told that his host had organised a concert for him. A symphony was needed and, not having one in his luggage, Mozart had four days in which to write a new one! The result is a miracle of invention that gives absolutely no hint of the composer’s rushed circumstances.
