A glorious programme encompassing music of sublime wit, high drama and intense emotion. Mozart produced some of the most joyous operatic music ever written, and we are treated to several delights boasting vocal lines of deep expression and breathtaking agility.

Weber’s operas have been hugely influential, inspiring the likes of Wagner to embark on his pioneering music dramas. But it is his operatic overtures which are most frequently performed, and their popularity is understandable: the music brims with energy, intrigue and originality.

The programme culminates in the devastating beauty of Tchaikovsky’s Pathétique Symphony, a masterpiece of aching emotion and symphonic brilliance.
