The illustrious soloists of the English Concert, not so often heard in more intimate chamber music, step out of the pit for Lucio Silla with a programme chosen from the wunderkind’s shower of graceful chamber works, at a time when Mozart was disillusioned with his situation in Salzburg but inspired by his acquaintance with the virtuosi of the famous Mannheim Orchestra. His music in this form is full of galanterie but effortlessly inventive melodically, and gratefully acknowledging Papa Haydn’s fertility of imagination and innovative gesture. It is music that flows with ease and enchantment when the composer’s life was uneasy and full of doubts about future employment.

each instrumentalist played as though personally responsible for the entire show, wringing out every ounce of drama: at one point during Act II, the cellos unleashed such a torrent of fury that they threatened to upstage the cast.’ – Financial Times
