This week we are very honored to bring to you the Gala Concert of the Mozart Association of Italy, or AMI. AMI was founded in 1987 as the Mozart Festival in Roverto, Italy. Their goal was the promotion of the Italian music of Mozart which they felt was a bit understated in Mozart’s life, but very important to his overall character and musical maturity. On January 12th of 1991 the Mozart Festival became the Mozart Association of Italy which currently has several chapters in Italy, Japan and China with the national headquarters remaining in Roverto.
Every 2 years AMI holds an international competition for soloists. Each contestant performs several solo and group works by Mozart. Soloists may perform on the oboe, clarinet, french horn, bassoon and flute. Contestants also must be born after January 1, 1980. The winner on each instrument receives 2,000 Euros to help further their solo career.
Thus we were very pleased when AMI President Marcello Abbado contacted Ken and wanted Classical Music Discoveries to broadcast their Gala concert which consists of their finalists in performance. We look forward to a long a fruitful relationship with AMI.
During the concert each soloist is accompanied by the world famous Haydn Orchestra. The orchestra is conducted by Concert Master Marco Mandolini.
