Haydn, Mozart and Pugnani

Tue 7th May 2013, 7:30pm

Live from Wigmore Hall, London

The Italian violin virtuoso Fabio Biondi returns, after a four-year absence from the group, to direct The English Concert again. Renowned for his electrifying performances of the Baroque repertoire, in this concert he turns his attention to music of the later 18th century - with a concerto and a divertimento by Haydn, one of Mozart's most delightful Salzburg symphonies, and a rarity by Gaetano Pugnani, the 18th-century violin prodigy who studied with Giuseppe Tartini, himself taught Giovanni Battista Viotti, and who unknowingly gave his name to the pastiche compositions passed off by a notable virtuoso violinist of our own times - Fritz Kreisler.
