Programme Note

Surrey Mozart Players presents three beguiling masterpieces by composers not trying too hard to impress. Fauré’s response to a royal commission for the Monte Carlo Theatre was to revamp some early songs and a discarded symphonic movement. These brilliant Masques et Bergamasques will be performed tonight. Mozart gave his very best to produce a splendid Oboe Concerto for Archbishop Colloredo, which he later recycled as a flute concerto. Oboist Layla Baratto will delight us with the original version. Finally, when reviewers complained that Poulenc’s radiant Sinfonietta lacked gravitas, he responded that they should not try to analyse his music – just enjoy it. We intend to.
