Michael Collins conducts Mozart

Academy of Ancient Music

Soraya Mafi

Indulge in a feast of Mozart in a programme that combines his much-loved clarinet concerto and exquisite arias.

Soloists Nicola Boud and Soraya Mafi perform under the baton of Michael Collins, who with a continuing and distinguished career as a clarinet virtuoso has also become a highly-respected conductor and makes his directing debut with AAM tonight.

Operatic drama comes to the concert hall in a piece Salieri re-worked from two of his own opera overtures, and an overture by the German princess and composer, Anna Amalia, Duchess of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel, who transformed her court into the most influential cultural centre of late 18th-century Germany.

Pre-concert talk, 6.30pm
