“L’enfance” Mozart’s Piano by Aurora Orchestra – LONDON

December 16, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm GMT

Drawing the first year of Mozart’s Piano to a close, Aurora presents a concert celebrating the exuberance, playfulness and imagination of Mozart’s childhood. This programme draws together Mozart’s witty piano concerto No. 7, which was commissioned by Countess Lodron for her daughters; Ravel’s enchanting Mother Goose Suite, composed for siblings Jean and Mimi, aged 6 and 7; and Saint-Saëns’ The Carnival of the Animals. Aurora welcomes two recent winners of the BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition – Lara Melda and Martin James Bartlett – as soloists, whilst Writer-in-Residence Kate Wakeling weaves together stories from Mozart’s early family life with the fairytales and animals so beautifully evoked by Saint-Saëns and Ravel.

Mozart Piano Concerto No. 7 in F major
Saint-Saëns The Carnival of the Animals 
Ravel Mother Goose Suite
