OXFORD PROMS – CONCERTO SPECTACULAR
Maki Sekiya – piano
Lucy Downer – clarinet
Catherine Underwood - conductor
Our proms programme includes 2 of Mozart’s iconic creations, a premiere, and a popular opener by Handel.
Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.21, written in 1785, when he was only twenty-nine, just six years before his early death is sometimes referred to as the Elvira Madigan, after a now otherwise long-forgotten film that featured the work. The Clarinet Concerto, completed in 1791, the year of Mozart’s death, marked his farewell to instrumental music. It was also the first clarinet concerto to be written by a major composer.
