Begin your evening by visiting our pop-up gin bar, kindly provided by Booths exclusively for this event, then prepare to be dazzled as Camerata's dynamic young leader Giovanni Guzzo steps into the limelight as director and soloist.

Leader Giovanni Guzzo steps up to lead Mozart’s fifth concerto for violin, written in Salzburg during the composer’s teenage years. Refined, lyrical and endlessly charming, as ever with Mozart, this concerto exhibits an extraordinary maturity beyond the composer’s years. This programme also features the Adagietto from Mahler’s Symphony no.5, the composer’s beautiful love song to his wife Alma. Relax with a drink from our gin bar at the interval, before the evening continues with more Mahler. His arrangement for string orchestra of Schubert’s extraordinary 14th string quartet, Death and the Maiden, completes the programme.

PRE-CONCERT TALK 6.45pm. Doors open 6.30pm.

Composer-in-Residence, Laura Bowler, discusses the cultural powerhouse that is Vienna.
