MOZART BRINGS CONCERT SERIES TO CLOSE

 

An outstanding masterpiece by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart will bring down the curtain this weekend on another successful International Concert Series staged by the University of Lincoln.

 

The Britten Sinfonia Soloists directed by Nicholas Daniel will appear at the Lincoln Drill Hall on Sunday (8th May) to perform Mozart’s Serenade for 13 Winds in B flat.

 

They will also be performing K361 ‘Gran Partita’ with an illustrated introduction of musical examples.

 

The concert follows a screening at the university last month of the 1984 Peter Shaffer film ‘Amadeus’ which features Serenade for 13 Winds, an outstanding and rarely heard Mozart masterpiece.

 

In the film Mozart's arch rival Salieri hears the wonderful piece of music across a crowded room and realises his enemy’s true genius.

 

A pre-concert talk will be given at 3.30pm on Sunday and the concert itself will begin at 4.15pm.

 

Tickets costing £9 (£8 concessions, £4 students and under 16s) are available from the Lincoln Drill Hall box office.

 

Call Lincoln 873894 between 10am and 5pm Monday to Saturday. Tickets will also be available on the door subject to availability.

 

The International Concert Series is just one of a number of public cultural events staged by the Lincoln Academy, part of the University of Lincoln.
