Ensemble Denote John Irving fortepiano Marcus Barcham-Stevens violin Sally Pendlebury cello Beethoven 12 variations for Violin and Piano WoO40 on Mozart's 'Se vuol ballare' from Le Nozze di Figaro Mozart 3 transcriptions for string trio of fugues from JS Bach's Das Wohltemperirte Clavier (with introductory Preludes by Mozart) K404a Beethoven 7 variations for Cello and Piano WoO46 on Mozart's 'Bei Mannern welche Liebe fuhlen' from Die Zauberflote Beethoven Symphony No. 2 Op. 36 (arranged by Beethoven) for violin, cello, and piano Music arranged by Mozart and Beethoven A series of three concerts in which period-instrument group, Ensemble DeNOTE explore celebrated chamber music by Mozart and Beethoven in unfamiliar arrangements made by the composers themselves, their pupils and contemporaries. Each concert is introduced by a pre-concert event led by Professor John Irving, Mozart specialist, fortepianist and founder of Ensemble Denote. We conclude our survey of arrangements by exploring arrangement as commentary, including one of Mozart's early piano concertos (in homage to J.C. Bach) and his reimagining of three fugues from J.S. Bach's Das Wohltemperirte Clavier. As Mozart looked back on the Bach family, so Beethoven did on Mozart himself, as we discover in two of his variation sets on famous Mozart arias. Beethoven's own Piano Trio arrangement of his Second Symphony brings our journey to its close. Pre-concert event at 2.15pm: John Irving and violinist-composer, Marcus Barcham-Stevens discuss historic chamber-music arrangements and their potential to inspire modern composers.
