Haydn Symphony No. 26 Lamentatione
Mozart Violin Concerto No.1
JC Bach Symphony in G minor
Mozart Violin Concerto in No.5
Rachel Podger director and violin
There is more to Mozart than meets the eye.
His repertoire is full of surprises and deceptions.
Mozart was the ultimate musical genius – and the ultimate game player. He tore up the rulebook, and if you hear his music twice, you never have quite the same experience.
Join us for the first of two concerts exploring the hidden secrets of Mozart’s familiar scores, led by the Orchestra’s longstanding collaborator, violinist Rachel Podger. She plays two of Mozart’s great violin concertos, which are both unique in their own ways.
Also enjoy an exhilarating but rarely performed symphony by Johann Christian Bach. The son of Johann Sebastian Bach, JC Bach was a celebrity in London in the 1770s. This Symphony in G Minor is his dramatic, standout work, full of twists and turns and dark passions.
St John's is a former church in Westminster, now a concert venue.
