Mozart lovers:take note of concert
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).
