OAE: Mozart: Master of Deception, with Rachel Podger

Part of Classical Season

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Rachel Podger show how Mozart was the ultimate musical genius - and the ultimate game player.

There is so much more to Mozart than meets the eye. His repertoire is full of surprises and deceptions. He tore up the rulebook, and if you hear his music twice, you never have quite the same experience.

Join the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment for the first of two concerts exploring the hidden secrets of Mozart’s familiar scores, led by the Orchestra’s longstanding collaborator, violinist Rachel Podger. She plays two of Mozart’s great violin concertos, which are both unique in their own ways.

Also enjoy an exhilarating but rarely performed symphony by Johann Christian Bach. The son of Johann Sebastian Bach, JC Bach was a celebrity in London in the 1770s. This Symphony in G minor is his dramatic, standout work, full of twists and turns and dark passions.
