  1. Overture, from Le nozze di Figaro, 'The Marriage of Figaro' K 492 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  2. Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in A - (Johann) Michael Haydn
  3. Serenade No 9 in D, 'Posthorn' K 320 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

The sparkling overture to Mozart’s most popular opera opens this concert. Haydn’s younger brother Michael was also a prolific and inventive composer, who spent his career in Salzburg and was friends with the Mozart family. The A major is the last and most ambitious of his three violin concertos, dating from about 1776. The Posthorn Serenade was possibly written for the end of year ceremony of Salzburg University. Its seven movements are contrasted in tempo and orchestration, ending with a presto finale which includes suitably celebratory flourishes from the posthorn.
