Western Suburbs Weekly - - Stage - By LYNN GRIERSON Jan­uary 21, 24, 28 and Fe­bru­ary 4 Kala­munda venues and UWA

MOVE over Beethoven be­cause the magic of Mozart is com­ing to Kala­munda and UWA in four cham­ber con­certs.

Fes­ti­val di­rec­tor and flautist Emily Gun­son said Kala­munda was cho­sen for the sum­mer fes­ti­val fol­low­ing the suc­cess of a 2006 mu­sic se­ries in the Hills for Mozart’s 250th an­niver­sary.

“I know there are mu­sic lovers hid­ing away in the Hills and that many peo­ple can’t face driv­ing to Perth for a con­cert,” she said.

Mu­si­cians from the WA Sym­phony Or­ches­tra will per­form in­ti­mate soirees at the Zig Zag Cul­ture Cen­tre and Kala­munda Mod­ern art gallery, WHAT: Sum­mer Mozart Fes­ti­val WHEN: WHERE: where au­di­ences will also be able to view an ex­hi­bi­tion of work by Ger­man ex­pres­sion­ist Ge­org Dudek.

The Sum­mer Mozart Fes­ti­val pre­sented by WA Mozar­teum will in­clude a con­cert at UWA on Sun­day, Jan­uary 28 from 3pm and con­clude with a fes­ti­val fi­nale at the Kala­munda Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre.

Au­di­ences will hear a va­ri­ety of work by the mu­si­cal mae­stro, com­ple­mented by com­po­si­tions from his friends, col­leagues and ri­vals.

Ms Gun­son wrote her PHD the­sis on Mozart and has per­formed for the Mozart Ge­sellschaft Kurp­falz in Mannheim, Ger­many.

Each con­cert will have a dif­fer­ent pro­gram, vary­ing from a lyri­cal di­ver­ti­mento to a flute con­certo, a sin­fo­nia con­cer­tante to a se­lec­tion of early com­po­si­tions by the boy ge­nius.

A high­light of the fes­ti­val will be Mozart’s fi­nal pi­ano con­certo, no. 27 in B-flat ma­jor (K.595), per­formed by guest artist Rus­sian con­cert pian­ist Irina Vasileva (Con­cert 4).
