Concertante Jewels

Lena Neudauer (violin)
Leopoldinum Chamber Orchestra Hartmut Rohde (viola and conductorship)

Haydn and Mozart were similar in many ways, and quintessentially different in others. However one thing was definitely shared: their undivided admiration and veneration of Bach’s son Carl Philipp Emanuel. As Haydn avowed, “I owe a great deal to Emanuel Bach, I understood him and have studied him diligently“. And Mozart stated: “anything we learned to do correctly, we learned it from him“. In the guest performance by the Leopoldinum Chamber Orchestra from Wrocław (formerly Breslau) a master class of old masters and students will be presented: Bach with his Symphony in E minor, composed in Mozart’s birth year 1756, Haydn with his Violin Concerto in C major, from his first years as a chapel musical director at the Esterházys, and Mozart with the jewel of his Sinfonia Concertante from 1779. Soloists are Lena Neudauer, who since her triumph at the Augsburger Leopold-Mozart-Contest in 1999 has belonged to the female violinist elite, and the master violist Hartmut Rohde, who since several years has also gained international attention as a conductor.
