About

For An Unknown Soldier is a cantata of remembrance to mark the centenary of the First World War. Commissioned by the London Mozart Players and Portsmouth Grammar School, Jonathan Doveís poignant work combines the words of war poets such as Wilfred Owen, William Noel Hodgson and Isaac Rosenberg. It lay at the centre of a multi-faceted project that encompassed primary and secondary schools, nursing homes and the local communities of Portsmouth and Croydon.

It is paired with the ensembleís performance of Doveís An Airmail Letter from Mozart, for two horns, string quartet and piano, directed by Melvyn Tan. Dove uses the 'Theme and Variations', and one or two other ideas, from Mozartís
Divertimento, K287, to write an imaginary letter to his wife Constanze.
