UCT Summer School: Mostly Mozart

On three successive nights of lecture-performances, Dr Barry Smith and distinguished musician friends will conjure up an exciting selection of the musical treasures of Mozart, some of which are rarely heard live in Cape Town.

The first evening will focus on chamber music: a violin sonata; the F major string quartet (K.590) written in honour of the King of Prussia shortly before Mozart’s death in 1789, and the masterly and moving Clarinet Quintet (K.581) that Mozart wrote for his clarinettist friend Anton Stadler.

The second evening will feature choral and vocal pieces, performed by the acclaimed group Vox under the direction of John Woodland, as well as a piano quartet.

The course will conclude with an orchestral programme on the third night, with a performance of the Symphony in A (K.201) and one of the piano concertos.
