Royal Northern Sinfonia
Kyra Humphreys, director
Originally written for a castrato, but now one of the showpieces for soprano, the Exsultate, Jubilate is a fine example of Mozart's genius: it was written in a day, and most likely without a keyboard to assist, as the teenage composer did what came naturally. Sung by Elizabeth Watts, it forms the finale of this concert which combines Mozart favourites with twentieth-century classics.
