Mozart: Kölner Akademie/Willens ****
Teatro Colón, Bogotá, 2nd April 2015
There are three principal joys of the “Bogotá is Mozart” festival: visiting a variety of different venues; hearing a range of both local and European ensembles; and catching up with some lesser-programmed Mozart. This delightful concert found me at the Teatro Cólon, in the historic Candelaria area of the city, to hear the splendid Kölner Akademie in a programme mixing the familiar (the opening strains of Mozart’s Symphony no. 40 bringing nods of recognition from the audience) with the rarely heard Piano Concerto no. 13 in C major. As a recipe for success, this programme truly had a head start.
