Celebrating Mozart

Today I went to a recording of a BBC Concert which is going to be broadcast on Radio 3 in January…

The Kungsbacka Piano Trio ( were superb and presented an hour of Mozart. I thoroughly enjoyed the concert and it’ll worth listening to when it is broadcast – they injected an energy into the performance, and clearly enjoy playing the music, and this showed!

It’s just a shame that more people don’t enjoy this kind of thing – there can’t have been more than 40 people in the audience – but even so, it was a superb (if short) concert.

  1. Mozart is very good, and certainly a genius of his time. I do think he is a little over-rated, and personally I prefer Beethoven.

    I’m glad to find someone else who enjoys music from a different time (other than, “oh, you mean the 1990’s?).

    Does anyone think that Robbie Williams would perform with the same energy and enthusiasm (that Tom described) if he only had an audience of 40?

  2. I’m not actually too bothered who wrote it – I’m just a fan of music being played properly, and live – nothing beats music written by talented composers, being played by talented artists who are clearly enjoying giving their performance, on instruments that take practise and skill.
