Australian Haydn Ensemble | Mozart’s Horn
2 April 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEDT$20 – $52
Virtuoso Australian horn player Carla Blackwood returns to Bathurst to perform with The Australian Haydn Ensemble after ten years performing in Europe. The Ensemble is delighted to welcome her back to perform Mozart’s much-loved Horn Quintet alongside his string quartet The Hunt and Haydn’s Fifths. Mozart completed his delightful Horn Quintet in 1782 for the horn player Ignaz Joseph Leutgeb, an old friend of the family from Salzburg. Throughout, the horn is called upon to match the agility and range of the string instruments, so much so that Alfred Einstein has described the Andante as “a little love duet between horn and violin”. The fast outer movements are touched by some of the same humour that characterised the friendship between Mozart and Leutgeb.
