Mozart and his Concertos

Ref: C3676000

On this course we shall consider a representative sample of Mozart's concertos, mainly for piano but also those for other instruments according to students' preferences. While the tutor will explain technical details and analyse pieces to an appropriate depth, at the heart of the course is the act of shared listening and any discussions that follow. The core of the course is listening to works together and any discussions that arise.

Course aim

This course will help students to understand and better appreciate Mozart's concertos.

Do I need any particular skills or experience?

  • No skills or experience needed
  • This course is suitable for beginners and improvers
  • More important than any previous musical experience is an interest in the subject. You do not have to be able to read music to enjoy this course.

What kind of feedback can I expect?

  • A range of informal activities will be used by the tutor to see what you are learning which may include quizzes, question and answer, small projects and discussion
  • You will be encouraged to share your work with the group and discuss your learning
