Scottish Chamber Orchestra - Levin plays Mozart

Scottish Chamber Orchestra - Levin plays Mozart

Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 19:30

Mozart in 1784 and Schubert in 1814/15 – great years for great composers. Mozart was at the height of his popularity in Vienna, writing a stream of new works to perform at his very own showcase concerts. Schubert found his voice in 1814/15 in masterpieces such as Gretchen am Spinnrade; his second symphony has all the best qualities of youth. To open the concert, Levin introduces an unsung hero of the Romantic age. Reicha was a friend of Beethoven and Haydn, and influential teacher of Berlioz, Liszt and Gounod among others.
