Mozart Horn Concertos
Premiers April 15 @ 7:30 pm at victoriasymphony.ca
Mozart’s Horn Concertos are joyful demonstrations of the instrument’s expressive capacity as well as of the remarkable skills of Mozart’s lifelong friend and horn virtuoso Joseph Leutgeb for whom they were composed. Our two resident virtuosos, Alana Despins and Michael Oswald, perform concertos No. 3 and 2 respectively. Completing the program: the opening String Sextet from Richard Strauss’ opera Capriccio. Strauss himself wrote two horn concertos inspired both by his great idol, Mozart, and by his father who was a professional horn player.
This concert is available until May 14, 2021.
