Bath Mozartfest 2017: Imogen Cooper; Takacs Quartet

From the Bath Mozartfest 2017 Tom Redmond presents music by Beethoven, Haydn and Mozart.

Today's Lunchtime Concert presented by Tom Redmond, comes from the Bath Mozartfest 2017, and is performed in the iconic and historic Assembly Rooms. The pianist Imogen Cooper starts with Haydn's Sonata in C minor, which she describes as one of his first seriously great sonatas. Cooper also plays music by Beethoven, a set of variations based on music by Antonio Salieri. The Takács Quartet then perform Mozart's String Quartet, K589. Whilst composing this quartet, Mozart described it as a laborious work.
