An immersion in classicism: that’s the programme of the traditional Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel Mozart Prelude in March. This year, the violin takes centre stage, with two of the five concertos written by Mozart for this instrument. By the same author, an aria for soprano and orchestra that casts doubt on masculine fidelity and brings a witty touch to this programme.

Finally, make way for the cello, with a concerto by Haydn that the composer wrote in 1783, one year before meeting Mozart. Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart became friends despite their twenty-four-year age difference. And although Mozart no longer needed one at this time, he considered “Papa Haydn” his mentor. A fine example of ‘apprenticeship’, which is also the watchword of the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel.
