There is more to Mozart than meets the eye.

His repertoire is full of surprises and deceptions.

Mozart was the ultimate musical genius – and the ultimate game player. He tore up the rulebook, and if you hear his music twice, you never have quite the same experience.

Join the OAE to explore the hidden secrets of Mozart’s familiar scores, led by the Orchestra’s longstanding collaborator, violinist Rachel Podger. She plays two of Mozart’s great violin concertos, which are both unique in their own ways.

Also enjoy an exhilarating but rarely performed symphony by Johann Christian Bach. The son of Johann Sebastian Bach, JC Bach was a celebrity in London in the 1770s. This Symphony in G Minor is his dramatic, standout work, full of twists and turns and dark passions.

Friday 23 – Sunday 25 October, Brecon Baroque Festival

Brecon Baroque

Festival director and baroque violinist Rachel Podger performs the première of Chad Kelly’s arrangement of JS Bach’s Goldberg Variations for Rachel Podger and Brecon Baroque.

The Goldberg Variations were filmed in the sun-drenched south transept of Brecon Cathedral. The transept dates from the 13th Century and its magnificent stone walls are adorned with 18th Century memorials, a fitting backdrop for Chad Kelly’s reimagining of JS Bach’s 1741 Goldberg Variations. The 32-movement work and the setting of Brecon Cathedral sit well together, with the wild and beguiling energy of the musicians and the mountains around them.
