Piano Concerto No. 6 in B-flat major K.238 was composed by Mozart in January 1776.  His Concerto No. 7 (K. 242) and Concerto No. 8 (K. 246) in C major would follow within three months. The three works share what musicologist Cuthbert Girdlestone refered to as a galant style, from early in Mozart's career.

The work is structured in three movements:

    Allegro aperto

    Andante un poco adagio

    Rondeau: Allegro

The work is scored in the original for two flutes, two oboes, two horns, solo piano and strings, reduced in Danielle Salamon’s arrangement for chamber ensemble as part of her innovative Mozart Piano Concerto Series.  

Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major, K.467
was completed by Mozart on 9 March 1785, four weeks after the completion of the previous D minor concerto, K. 466.

The concerto in its original form s scored for solo piano, flute, two oboes, two bassoons, two horns in C, two trumpets in C, timpani and strings.

The concerto has three movements:

     Allegro maestoso
    Andante in F major
    Allegro vivace assai

Famously, the second movement of this concerto was used throughout the 1967 film Elvira Madigan, directed by Bo Widerberg and starring Pia Degermark and Thommy Berggren.

London-born soprano Raphaela Papadakis, winner of the National Mozart Competition, made her professional début at Garsington Opera whilst still a student at the Guildhall School, for which she was praised by the Financial Times as giving “the most attractive solo performance” of the show.

Since then, she has gone on to perform roles with Independent Opera and Bury Court Opera, and covered at Glyndebourne Festival Opera, the Royal Opera House and the Berlin Staatsoper. Operatic highlights this year include appearing as Mozart’s Susanna as reimagined by composer Ollie Brignall in a new opera called Roles, a Metta Theatre production taking place as part of the V&A’s Opera: Passion Power and Politics exhibition, and at West Green House Opera in her house début as Duzzwadeva in their new English translation of Offenbach’s one act operetta Ba-ta-clan.

Danielle Salamon is much in demand both as musician and teacher, with a particular interest in the training and development of gifted young players.
She has been a winner of the
Mozart Memorial Prize and was Convocation Pianist in Residence at the University of Sheffield where she worked closely with the Lindsay String Quartet.
Other musical activities include chamber music and she is an examiner for the ABRSM,
adjudicating and presenting weekend courses on the lives and work of various great composers.
