** Unfortunately soprano Simone Kermes has had to withdraw from this evening's performance.  We are pleased to welcome Susanna Hurrell who will be singing instead.

London-born soprano Susanna Hurrell is highly regarded as one of the most versatile singers of her generation. Since her critically acclaimed debut with the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden as Lauretta Gianni Schicchi in 2016, her pure, clear tone and warm stage presence have garnered praise from audiences and critics throughout Europe and the UK.  **

Here is a portrait of Mozart the genius, boy and man – from a joyous symphony written when he was just eight years old, to the profound Requiem that he left unfinished at his death. Meet him as he measures up to his idol, JS Bach in the Adagio and Fugue, and as a solemn freemason in the Trauermusik (Masonic Funeral Music).
This concert is also a chance to meet an extraordinary young talent from Finland: the conductor Klaus Mäkelä. Still in his early 20s, he is already in high demand and has a string of prestigious appointments to his name. Come and hear what all the excitement is about.
