Camerata Salzburg / Jansen / Ahss
… del Wolfgango Amadeo Mozart di Salisburgo
In 1772 Mozart became concertmaster to the prince-archbishop in the city of Salzburg, which he hated. Forced from early childhood to travel restlessly, he was now suddenly settled not only at the first desk of the court orchestra there, but also in a comparatively provincial metropolis, where he drew on his experiences at international courts. Between 1733 and 1775, Mozart composed - for himself - his five concertos for violin and orchestra, as well as several individual movements for this instrumentation. On two evenings, Janine Jansen and Gregory Ahss will slip into the role of the concertmaster of the child prodigy and, in addition to Mozart's first violin concerto, will interpret his early »Concertone«, a festive work that is still very much of the concerto grosso type. The Camerata Salzburg's program is supplemented by the first symphony of the eight-year-old Mozart with its enigmatically beautiful C minor Andante as well as the G major symphony composed in The Hague in 1769, also known as the »Old Lambacher«.
