Be transported by Bach and Mozart at an evening marking 45 years of The English Concert, directed by keyboard virtuoso Kristian Bezuidenhout.
The first part of the evening culminates in Bach’s thoughtful Harpsichord Concerto in D minor. The interval is followed by two Mozart pieces, crowned with the appealing and spirited Symphony No.29, written when the composer was just 19.
The English Concert, directed by the then rising star Trevor Pinnock, played their first concert in Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room in 1973. Now see them celebrate their 45th anniversary in the newly refurbished Queen Elizabeth Hall.
