It has already become an annual tradition that the Armel Opera Festival awardee join the London Mozart Players on stage for the opening concert of their St John’s Upper Norwood series. For the
70th birthday season launch, Croydon’s resident orchestra will be joined by talented violinist Radu Kis, the teenage finalist of Hungary’s prestigious Virtuosos 2017 classical music competition.
Relive the summer as we perform our specially commissioned Anthem for Peace with St Christopher’s Community and Open Door Choirs, before we take you on a musical journey around the Mediterranean. Rossini’s delightful and surprising overture to his opera The Italian Girl in Algiers kicks off the evening followed by Mozart’s electrifying Violin Concerto in A – also known as the ‘Turkish’ because of the frenzied Allegro in the final movement.
Thoughts of sultry Seville will be evoked in the Carmen Fantasy, a veritable tour de force for the violin and featuring the talented percussionists of Trinity Laban. Mendelssohn’s delightful ‘Italian’ Symphony which the composer himself called ‘the jolliest piece I have ever done’ provides the suiting finale for what will be a memorable evening showcasing new young talent destined for the world’s stage.
