    Mozart and Haydn

    Presented by Arcadia Players

    October 7, 2012


    Mozart and Haydn

    AMADEUS COMES TO LINCOLN! Arcadia Players, playing instruments either made in Mozart’s time, or accurate copies of them, will play concertos by both Mozart and Haydn, conducted by Ian Watson, Director of Music at First Parish in Lincoln. Arcadia Players, founded in 1989, is well known as one of the premier period-instrument ensembles in the Northeast, and draws its players from both Boston and New York. On the program are concertos by Mozart and Haydn, and also the cantata Exsultate Jubilate with Kristen Watson soprano, which concludes with the famous "Alleluia". Ian Watson himself will be the soloist in Mozart's Piano Concerto in A, K 414 using a replica of a late 18th century fortepiano, the forerunner of the modern grand. “Using instruments from the period is not an historical or academic exercise", Watson added, "We use them to imbue the music with the same passion and white-hot intensity with which it was created. That is a truly authentic approach. Present-day audiences are used to hearing instruments which have a powerful sound. Our instruments are not so powerful, but the clarity and purity of sound more than compensates for the sheer volume".
