MOZART + MENDELSSOHN

MAR 17 + 19

Overview

The gaiety, humor, and sparkle of Mozart’s concerto comes to life via the magical sound of the fortepiano, the instrument for which he composed this work. You’ll especially relish the last movement, which incorporates the song of Mozart’s pet starling! It has been 155 years since H+H performed the glorious “Reformation” symphony, with its stirring “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” finale. Rising to a lofty crescendo, the chaconne by the 18th-century French composer, conductor, and opera director Pierre Berton makes for an especially regal concert opening.
