Aurora Orchestra brings the year to a close in style with a New Year’s Eve programme in the company of world-class pianist Imogen Cooper.

Concluding both the Time Unwrapped and Mozart’s Piano series for 2018, this special concert transports us to Vienna, the city which inspired Mozart to create much of his finest music, and which gave us the two ‘Waltz kings’, Johann Strauss I and II.

Count down to the year’s end with an evening of song, dance and celebration including some of Mozart’s best-loved works – the Marriage of Figaro overture, the G-major piano concerto supposedly inspired by the composer’s pet starling, and the 39th symphony, which evokes the same Austrian Ländler folk dances from which Strauss’ Viennese waltzes would later emerge.

‘She is an outstanding artist, one of the finest pianists now playing. Go, listen, and wonder how many better pianists there are alive in this country, or anywhere.’ Daily Telegraph
