In this edition, Manchester Camerata continues exploring the unlikely friendship between Mozart and Leutgeb, one of the finest horn players of his time. Leutgeb frequently found himself the target of his composer’s playful jokes. There’s a fun yet challenging nature to these pieces, in particular, Concerto No.4 during the 3rd movement showcases a musical game of ‘catch me if you can’, where the orchestra ‘chases’ the horn player who is always a step ahead!

Alongside Mozart’s Horn concertos, they also perform Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7. One of Beethoven’s more cheery and joyful pieces, it shows that the composer still found reason for optimism even after the onset of deafness.

Enjoy this vitalising performance fuelled by the undeniable energy of Gábor Takács-Nagy, with Martin Owen as the Horn player. Regarded as one of Europe’s leading horn players, Martin has performed with the likes of the Berliner Philharmoniker, with The Times calling his playing ‘a luxury for the ears’. We are delighted to have him with us – don’t miss this opportunity to see some of Mozart’s great works performed with a truly incredible musician.
