Songs for the Fortepiano

Holy Trinity Church, Upper Brook Street, Winchester SO23 8DG

4pm - 5pm

Live music returns to Winchester!

This concert evokes the musical world of late 18th-century Vienna, balancing the later lieder of Mozart with early songs of Beethoven and culminating in Haydn’s masterpiece Arianna a Naxos, first published in Vienna in 1791. Also featured are early piano pieces by Beethoven and Haydn. At the heart of the programme is a copy of a Viennese fortepiano built by Mattheas Heilmann in 1785, exactly the kind of instrument that Mozart, Beethoven and Haydn would have known, bringing the listener into an intimate sound world perfect for these chamber masterpieces.

Advance booking only. Audience capacity strictly limited for social distancing.
