A piece by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart will be performed by The Rouen Opera Orchestra, on January 8 in the Minor Basilica of the Convent of St. Francis of Assisi.
The piece, La Gran Partita, Serenade No. 10, KV-361, in B flat, for 12 wind instruments and a double bass, was composed back in 1784 and its premier took place that same year in Vienna.
The orchestra, coming form High Normandy, France, has been involved, from January 3 to 6, in exchanges among professionals, seminars on the restoration of instruments, and courses at the San Felipe Neri Theatre.
They will interpret pieces by Gioachino Rossini, Johann Sebastian Bach and Charles Gounod.
We hope it will be a very special performance for our city.
