Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Mozart’s Finale

This was a detailed examination of Mozart’s last 12 months in which he wrote some of his greatest works (including the Clarinet Concerto, the Magic Flute, La Clemenza di Tito, Ave Verum Corpus, the Requiem, the last Piano Concerto and the last two String Quintets) but struggled financially and professionally.

I ran this course at Crayford Manor (Bexley College) October-December 2001.  I also gave 250th anniversary talks for the DfE Music Society in January 2006 and the HSE European Society in April 2006.  I drew on the course for two classes at the City Lit in February 2008 (Piano concerti) and March 2008 (Magic Flute).
