Army of Generals: Leeuwarden
April 22 @ 19:30 - 21:305€ – 20€
Das Neue Mannheimer Orchester is proud to shed light on the golden age of music in Mannheim and Schwetzingen on period instruments during the formative years of Mozart from 1760–80. The namesake “Army of Generals” comes from a quote by English musicologist Charles Burney, who visited Mannheim in 1772 and wrote: “There are more solo players and good composers in this, than perhaps in any other orchestra in Europe; it is an army of generals, equally fit to plan a battle, as to fight it.”
