For some years at the start of his career, the conductor Roger Norrington pursued his musical activities outside office hours. Twenty years ago he made the break by founding the Heinrich Schutz Choir, leading a crusade on behalf of this then little-known master, and thereby establishing his own reputation as a performer of pre-classical music. His choice of music ranges far and wide, from Schutz and Bach to Bartok and Pee Wee Hunt playing Twelfth Street rag

(MOZART, 1778) Richard LUCKETT sketches the origins of this short-lived genre as a prelude to a performance of the work Mozart was describing, Medea by Jlri Benda.

direct from the Logan
Hall. Bloomsbury, London The first of six
Programmes marking the bicentenary of the death of Johann Christian Bach is the first performance since 1765 of his sixth opera. The boy Mozart, who was in London then. was befriended by Bach and almost certainly saw the opera. Mozart later wrote embellishments to one of the arias and-these will be sung this evening.
The opera is set in Antioch in AD 117, after Trajan had annexed Parthia and after
Hadrian had succeeded him as Emperor.
