About this concert
The 2016-17 season marks Richard Egarr's tenth anniversary season as our Music Director. Equally at home with baroque and classical repertoire and beyond, this programme showcases Richard's virtuosity and versatility with some of his favourite classical repertoire.
Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven - three of the greatest composers who have ever lived - all wrote in a quintessentially classical style which is marked by elegant structures and exquisite melodies. For many their music represents a golden age, which has never been surpassed. After featuring in everything from Ace Ventura: Pet Detective to Fame, the music in tonight's concert is instantly recognisable and epitomises the enduring brilliance of these classical greats.
"Egarr's compellingly original vision... is a triumph in all its perspectives." GRAMOPHONE
