January 14- Mozart’s letters.
Mozart – the bad-boy genius – left hundreds of richly detailed letters. Delve into the life he led filled with triumphs, defeats, humour, anger and his passion which never waned.
Musician: Andrew Chan(Harp)
Deafness is the one affliction that no musician could possibly contemplate. Yet Beethoven went on to create enduring music which he heard solely in his imagination. We’ll examine the life of an artist who turned the music world upside down.
Musicians: Liz Eccleston (Oboe), Kevin Harris (Bassoon) and Anthony Thomson (Clarinet)
February 4 – Tchaikovsky
Surcharged emotionalism coupled with a lyricism and gift for melody that has never been equaled, we examine the tortured soul of this all too human icon of the romantic era.
Musicians: Sharon Lee and Marcus Scholtes (violinists)
