Patrick Mackie: Mozart in Motion: His Work and His World in Pieces

Monday 23 May | 2:30-3:30pm

£8 Venue: QUAD

Monday 23 May, 2.30-3.30pm at QUAD

Mozart is one of the most familiar and beloved cultural icons, but this ubiquity can keep his music from being heard in all its audacious vividness.

Mackie returns to the vital experience of listening to Mozart's music. By uncovering new perspectives on the priorities and emphases of the music, he explores how Mozart was composing at precisely the moment when the modern world was forming, and how this speaks clearly to our time.

Mozart in Motion Is a fresh and revitalising exploration of Mozart’s life and work through the prism of the turbulent time in which he lived, and gives us a new understanding of why his pieces still move us so intensely.
