To mark the London Mozart Players’ 70th year, a concert to celebrate Mozart – and his women!

Mozart composed several works to celebrate the women who touched his life. ‘Mozart’s women’ included piano virtuoso Victoire Jeunehomme, who would have performed K.271; his first love, soprano Aloysia Weber – inspiration for the ravishing ‘Vorrei spiegarvi, oh Dio’ (which reaches top E); Aloysia’s sister Constanze – later Mozart’s wife, for whom he composed the soprano part of his Mass in C Minor; and English soprano Nancy Storace, the muse behind ‘Ch’io mi scordi di te?’ (which includes a solo piano). Not forgetting the composer’s sister Maria Anna – ‘Nannerl’, and his mother, Maria, who accompanied Mozart through Europe in 1778, dying shortly after the performance of his ‘Paris’ Symphony.

Jane Glover, who became the first female Artistic Director of any orchestra when she joined the London Mozart Players in 1984, returns to conduct this celebratory concert at St John’s Smith Square to mark the orchestra’s, and her own, 70th birthday. The orchestra will be joined by soprano Jennifer France and BBC Young Musician 2018 Lauren Zhang for an evening of sublime music.
