Mozart with Robert Levin
Part 1 of 'I'm a Rock 'n' Roll Star'
Mozart was the bad boy of late-18th-century Vienna. He was famed for gigs where he would turn up with armfuls of new piano concertos, and then promptly improvise many of the solos to the amazement of his musicians and audiences – the Jimi Hendrix or Kurt Cobain of his day. Legend has it that Mozart would ask his audience for ideas and popular tunes of the day and would then improvise solos based on these on the spot.
In our first programme at Wilton’s, Robert Levin performs two concertos, improvising the cadenzas as Mozart would have done in his day. He also improvises a fantasia in the style of Mozart, using ideas and tunes suggested by the audience.
