Mozart's Symphony No.29

Mozart's Symphony No.29

Delight in an hour of Mozart with a charming concerto for a wind quartet and a theatrical symphony.

Mozart bequeathed wind players some of their most charming and expressive music – think of those delightful concertos for oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon. That team assembles for an irresistibly winsome quartet-concerto.

Sure, this Sinfonia concertante hasn’t survived in quite the form it was completed by Mozart, but it is Mozart at its core, and the four winds could easily be singers in a buoyant ensemble number from one of his operas.

The Symphony No.29 has a magnetic appeal that is authentically Mozartian. The vivid theatricality of its first movement curtain-raiser draws us to the edge of our seats, while the dazzling finale sparks like a firework.

Please note Sydney Symphony Orchestra is not a ticketing agent for the event on 17 August at Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre. Tickets can be purchased through the venue.
