About The Mozartists:
“It is hard to imagine hearing another performance as convivial and life-affirming as this.” GRAMOPHONE

The Mozartists (formerly Classical Opera - registered charity number 1063387) was founded by conductor and Artistic Director Ian Page to explore and bring to life the music of Mozart and his contemporaries. The company is a leading exponent in its field and has received widespread acclaim for its high-quality live performances, recordings, broadcasts and education projects, as well as its work in developing exceptional young singers.
