Michael Howell plays Mercadante in B Shed
Time & Location
About the event
František Xaver Richter’s early classic symphony in G major is a jolly starter and leads to Saverio Mercadante’s fantastic Flute Concerto in E Minor featuring Michael Howell. (Listen to Mr Howell’s great performance of the Mozart Flute Concerto with FCO last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDLcBnawIDo ). The Mercadante Concerto packs an abundance of sweet melodies, virtuosity and drama all in one. After the interval, Romanticism abounds with Puccini’s exquisite Crisantemi and the rarely heard Serenade by Mieczysław Karłowicz. The perfect finish is the Divertimento K137 by Mozart brimming with charm and wit.
