Lock-In: Mozart Quintet for Piano and Winds

Mozart Quintet for Piano and Winds in E flat, K452
Principal Players of Aurora Orchestra Experience

Mozart’s delightful masterpiece for piano and winds performed in-the-round in the intimate setting of an Aurora Lock-In.

Composed in 1784, the quintet is scored for an unusual combination of piano, oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon, and was a firm favourite of the composer himself, who reported the work had ‘received the most remarkable applause’ at its premiere. Written in the midst of a flurry of new piano concerto commissions, the work accordingly takes on something of a concertante form, also featuring a daring cadenza scored for all five instruments in the work’s dance-like finale.

Lie back on a cushion and savour the chance to hear this rarely-performed gem up close.

Part of The Lock-In series at Kings Place:

As the lights go down in Hall One, we move across to Hall Two to grab a drink and settle in for a revelatory late-night series. Curated by Aurora Principal Players, each intimate and informal performance takes you on a journey of musical discovery across diverse genres and art forms. Expect eclectic musical encounters that unfold in new and surprising ways, from entering otherworldly dimensions in electronic music to learning the steps to a rip-roaring hoedown to meeting a pterodactyl in the most unlikely of circumstances.

These informal events take place in Hall Two, with bar service available in the Hall throughout. Doors open at 9.15pm with live music starting approximately 9.30pm. Events last c. 60 minutes.

Please note that this is a mixed seating / standing event – seating is limited. Please call the Box Office on 020 7520 1490 or email info@kingsplace.co.uk to discuss your access requirements.
