Sarah Walker presents music from the Bath Mozartfest including a Serenade by Mozart and Janacek’s Intimate Letters.
Sarah Walker presents a selection of music from the 2018 Bath Mozartfest. To begin, London Winds perform Mozart’s Serenade K375. A work that was premiered at the house of the sister-in-law of the Imperial Court Painter, where influential officials from the Viennese court would circulate. This is followed by the Belcea Quartet performing Janacek’s Intimate Letters. It is one of the last works the Moravian composer wrote, and a work which sprang from his feelings of unrequited love.
Mozart: Serenade in E flat major, K375
Janacek: String Quartet No 2 (Intimate Letters)
