Pre-concert talk at 2.45pm
Maria Constanza Weber, Maria Aloysia Weber, Maria Josepha Weber, Nancy Storace...
Throughout his career, Mozart worked with – and was inspired by - some of the greatest sopranos of his day. This concert showcases the music Mozart wrote for them – from the sparkling arias that he tailored to their voices “like a well-cut suit”, to the great Mass setting with which he celebrated his marriage.
, 2.45pm: given by Jane Glover, conductor,
and author of
Mozart’s Women: His Family,
His Friends, His Music
