A new concerto written specially for Julia Fischer, performed alongside Mozart's Mass in C Minor.

There are no limits on creativity – Mozart gave his first performance at the age of six, composed masterpieces in his teens, and wrote The Magic Flute for a family audience in a humble local theatre. He never even completed his mighty Mass in C minor, but it’s still capable of shaking you to the soul – and after all, the music is in you. Edward Gardner and the London Philharmonic Choir make it speak again tonight, and our good friend, violinist Julia Fischer gives life to a brand new concerto written specially for her by the young British composer Daniel Kidane.
