It’s hard to believe that Mozart penned all five of his violin concertos in a single year, 1775. The fourth of these exquisite concertos is a favourite of violinists and audiences, by turns effervescent and charming, and infused with Mozart’s effortless operatic sense of melody. To perform it, we are joined by virtuoso violinist Sophie Rowell.

Join us to be immersed in Mozart’s world, with music written in the 1770s by members of his close circle, and hear an uplifting, rarely-heard suite by Sibelius reflecting on romantic aspects of Finnish rural life.
