Kings, Chess and Mozart

Our Season Finale takes us from Shakespeare’s (and Leicester’s) famous King to the emotion of Mozart’s most brooding Piano Concerto, and then to the dramatic moves of the pieces as they clash in a game of chess. Mozart’s D minor piano concerto is one of contrasts. The drama of the first movement is followed by the sublime Romance and then the lively finale. Local pianist Anne Bolt will be our soloist. Arthur Bliss wrote ‘Checkmate’ at the height of his powers in 1937 and it is considered a cornerstone of the British ballet repertoire.
