Program Book

Behind every great piece is a great story. Have a read through the program book to get all the details.

Music’s Classical style reached its peak with Mozart, and his mastery is evident in this Serenade for Orchestra.

Written in 1776 when Mozart was just 20, the piece is dedicated to a family friend, Marie Elisabeth Haffner, to mark the occasion of her wedding.

At almost an hour in length, it stands alone amongst Mozart’s instrumental music – and tells a story of inexhaustible creativity as he takes us through eight stunning movements. From a bright and optimistic beginning to gorgeous slow movements and sparkling dances, music like this is unforgettable.
