‘Mozart’s Concerto No. 2: The Concert of Serenade in C Major’ is a must-watch for students of classical music
By Michael FaganPublished Mar 06, 2018 03:12:59A masterclass on classical music history, its influence on modern music and the world’s most famous symphony is about to be published in the world of classical.
Mozarts Concerto no. 2, the first piece by the celebrated composer and conductor Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, is a masterclass for children, but it also holds a place in classical music lore.
“It’s one of those things that we’re still trying to understand and the reason it’s important for children is that it’s an absolute classic,” said Sarah McLean, a senior lecturer in classical at the University of Melbourne.
“You can listen to it on the piano and you can listen it in the orchestra and it’s so richly expressive.”
Kids will love it.
They’ll love the fact that it comes from a man who is such a passionate composer.
“The composer’s concerto was published in 1883, when Mozart was a 19-year-old boy, and has been hailed as one of the worlds greatest musical achievements.”
I think it’s the most popular piece of classical literature in the history of music,” McLean said.”
The thing about it is that, it’s just a beautiful piece of music and it has such a profound effect on people and the music itself is so moving.
“McLean said children and their parents will enjoy learning more about the composer and his career and also about the life of Mozart himself.”
Mozarte was a very dedicated man,” she said.
