I’m really looking forward to Sunday’s concert at Wigmore Hall with Erich Höbarth. It’s the second in our pair of concerts this season featuring duo sonatas by Mozart for piano and violin. What a treat it has been to be so closely involved with this music – and this musician – for a couple of years now during our Mozart project. I feel it’s done my playing and my ears a lot of good. I have often thought of musicologist Hans Keller’s remark that Mozart’s was ‘the only truly omniscient ear of which we know’.
This Sunday evening, however, there seem to be an awful lot of clashing events. My publicity attempts have been answered by sheaves of correspondence from people apologising that they will be at Glyndebourne or Grange Park operas, or at this or that festival, Midsummer event, barbecue, graduation dinner, pre-Wimbledon Tennis Championships festivities or May Ball. Clearly the end of June is a highlight of everyone’s social diary.
We would love to see you in Wigmore Hall on Sunday evening – booking details here.
