Nicola Benedetti Violin
Lawrence Power Viola
Scottish violin star Nicola Benedetti joins the Oxford Philharmonic for an energised performance of Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5, also known as the ‘Turkish’. Written in 1775 when the composer was aged just 19, his unique voice and writing style is already apparent, particularly in the main theme of the first movement.
For the second piece in the concer, Benedetti is joined by violist Lawrence Power for Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante – the composer’s most successful work in the genre bridging the symphony and concerto styles.
The concert will be streamed for free on the Orchestra’s YouTube Channel and will be available for 28 days. Reserve a free ticket in order to receive the link directly via email.
