MOZART MOMENTUM 1785/1786: IN RESIDENCE

November 2021

Mozart Momentum 1785/1786 reunites the MCO with our Artistic Partner Leif Ove Andsnes to look deeply at two of the most creative years in Mozart’s life, through a mix of chamber and orchestral music, plus piano concertos performed with the same intimate agility and self-directed approach that was the hallmark of our celebrated collaboration during the Beethoven Journey (2013–15).

The basis for Mozart Momentum 1785/1786 is the composer’s Piano Concerto No. 20, a landmark work written in 1785 that dramatically reshaped the relationship between soloist and orchestra, paving the way for more dynamic communication, dialogue, interaction, and freedom of exchange – echoing the MCO’s own unique approach.

In this series of residencies at major halls across Europe, we enable audiences to immerse themselves in the works that defined Mozart's creativity during these years: the string of five dazzling piano concertos with Andsnes, intimate chamber works with MCO Principals, expressive arias and songs with Christiane Karg, plus the drama of the Prague symphony and Masonic Funeral Music led by MCO Concertmaster Matthew Truscott.
