Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment: ‘Experience’ Ensemble – Mozart

Friday 9th February 2018, 1:00 pm

Programme

The ‘little serenade’ that Mozart dashed off as an occasional piece in 1787 (and left for his wife to publish after his death) eventually became one of the most famous of all his works. Just as diverting are two other chamber works featuring wind instruments, where Mozart foregrounds the expressive and agile qualities of the oboe and the stirring virtuosity of the horn. The superb Experience players of the OAE play all three works on period instruments in the serene setting of Hughenden Parish Church.

Mozart – Eine kleine Nachtmusik
Mozart – Oboe Quartet in F major
Mozart – Horn Quintet in E flat major

About the Artists

Three decades ago, a group of London musicians took a good look at that curious institution we call the Orchestra, and decided to start again from scratch. They began by throwing out the rulebook. Put a single conductor in charge? No way. Specialise in repertoire of a particular era? Too restricting. Perfect a work and then move on? Too lazy. The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment was born.

30 years later the OAE is nurturing the next generation of period instrument talent. The Ann and Peter Law OAE Experience is the Orchestra’s scheme for talented musicians, helping them bridge the gap between conservatoire education and a professional playing career. They benefit from coaching and guidance from experienced OAE members and perform alongside them concerts, rehearsals and education projects. They also perform in a separate ensemble under the direction of OAE players.
