  1. Overture, from Don Giovanni K 527 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  2. Concerto for violin and orchestra in E minor Op 64 - Felix Mendelssohn
  3. Symphony No 4 in B flat Op 60 - Ludwig van Beethoven

London Mozart Players deliver drama with Mozart’s villainous paramour Don Giovanni, warmth and wit with Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony, and pure romance with Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto – performed by rising star Júlia Pusker.

London Mozart Players’ ‘Spotlight On…’ series continues with the brilliant young violinist Júlia Pusker joining LMP at St John’s Smith Square to perform a cornerstone of the repertoire — Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto, his last major work. From the fast and passionate opening with its haunting melody and breathtaking cadenza through to the thrilling coda of the final movement, there is quicksilver beauty in every bar. Júlia is one of Hungary’s finest musicians and a founding member of the Ensemble Mirage, which featured in the 2016/17 St John’s Smith Square Young Artists’ series.

‘A supple Greek girl between two giants’ is how Robert Schumann described Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony. Eclipsed by its formidable neighbours – the Eroica and the Fifth – the Fourth Symphony is often overlooked, but it is a sensational work, full of freshness and spontaneity, with a character all its own.

The concert opens with a dramatic scene-setter – the overture to Don Giovanni, one of Mozart’s most popular operas. Its spine-tingling opening is one of the most memorable in all opera. US conductor Bedros Shetilian takes the baton for a concert of classical treasures in the intimate surroundings of St John Smith Square.
