About

A thrilling new collaboration between national living treasure, John Bell AO OBE and internationally acclaimed pianist, Simon Tedeschi. Nothing is more revealing of a person’s character than their private letters, especially if they are not intended for publication. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s letters are candid, emotional, hilarious, and heartbreaking. We follow his precarious fortunes, his triumphs and hardships, his reliance on fickle patronage, his occasional penury, his cheeky letters to his cousin and his desperation to please a tyrannical father. Australian theatre legend John Bell traces the life and career of Mozart, reading extensively from his letters, along with insights made by some of his contemporaries. Setting the soundtrack to the young composer’s life, extraordinary concert pianist Simon Tedeschi performs a range of Mozart’s exhilarating music for piano, including some of his best-loved works such as his Fantasia in D minor (K.397), Twinkle Twinkle variations, and his Rondo Alla Turca (Turkish march). With Love, Amadeus shines the spotlight once more on one of classical music’s enduring heroes, in another entertaining collaboration between two of Australia’s leading artists, John Bell AO OBE and Simon Tedeschi.
