Image Mozart, Made in Manchester: Horn Concertos

Manchester Camerata continues their Mozart, Made in Manchester series! This time, tackling the infamous Horn Concertos.

These playful concertos capture the close and jokey, yet unlikely friendship of Mozart and Leutgeb, one of the finest horn players of his time. When Mozart came to write concertos for Leutgeb in Vienna, he saw an opportunity to poke fun at his soloist and friend!

Alongside Mozart’s incredible Horn works, they will also perform Marianna Martines’ Overture in C Major and Haydn Symphony No.94.

Marianna, a composer also based in Vienna around the same time as Mozart, overcame gender-based obstacles to become a prominent member of the Viennese Musical scene. Her Overture in C Major is lyrical and full of spirit, and a testament to her orchestral mastery.

Enjoy this cheeky performance fuelled by the undeniable energy of Gábor Takács-Nagy, with Martin Owen as the Horn player. Regarded as one of Europe’s leading horn players, Martin has performed with the likes of the Berliner Philharmoniker, with The Times calling his playing ‘a luxury for the ears’. We are delighted to have him with us  – don’t miss this opportunity to see some of Mozart’s great works performed with a truly incredible musician.
