Music by Mozart features twice in this programme; first, his Piano Concerto number 12 which he wrote in Vienna in 1782 when he was 26 years old. For the second movement, Mozart quotes from the overture of Johann Christian Bach’s opera La calamita di cuori, as a tribute or epitaph to his tutor who died in January of that year. Mozart also wrote to his father about Bach's death, saying 'what a loss to the musical world!'. As far as the title of the opera is concerned, ‘The calamity of the heart’ might be a lazy translation from the Italian. The word ‘calamita’ means ‘magnet’ so it might be better rendered ‘The heart’s attraction’, literally ‘The magnet of hearts’.


Mozart’s Symphony number 29 ends the second half. He wrote this piece in 1774, when he was just 18 years old. It is one of his better- known early symphonies. Altogether, Mozart is thought to have written 23 piano concertos and as many as 68 complete symphonies, rather more than the 41 in traditional editions. He died in 1791 aged 34, another ‘loss to the musical world’. He left us a wonderful musical legacy of symphonies, concertos, operas and much else; music of great clarity, beauty and energy.

A LITTLE HISTORY ~ HIGHAM HALL COLLEGE~


Higham Hall was originally built in 1828 as a family home, then seeing service as both Youth Hostel and Girl’s Boarding School, before becoming an Education Centre for Cumbria County Council, who sold it in 2007 to a new Charitable Trust to be run independently. After a decade of standing on our own two feet, we are proud that Higham thrives as a nationally- recognised treasure trove of delightful courses for ‘doers and thinkers’.


Extract from Mannix & Whellan, History, Gazetteer and Directory of Cumberland, 1847:


“[Higham Hall] commands a pretty peep of the foot of Bassenthwaite Lake, and a magnificent view of the extensive range of hills from Sale Fell, in Wythop, to Torpenhow, embracing the Dodd, Ullock, Skiddaw proper, Orthwaite Fell, and Binsa.”


This is still our wonderful backdrop for lifelong learning. No qualifications, just a


desire to engage in what our wonderful carefully-selected tutors offer. It's a chance to meet new like-minded individuals, to develop your skills and knowledge and to be well-fed!


Many people from the local area covered by the Cockermouth Post come (thank you!), often as day (non-residential) students, to join other adult Students and Tutors typically from the North of England, Scotland and, indeed, all over the country.
