Let Mozart impress you in the third and final Mozart Celebration program with David Robertson and pianist Emanuel Ax.
The story of Mozart-as-child-prodigy is well known: touring Europe, impressing the aristocracy with his remarkable musical talent. But that was nothing compared to what he was to do as a mature artist, and we’ve brought together the last of his piano concertos and his final grand symphony, together with his K459 concerto from the “golden year” of 1784, when his career was at a peak. There’s brilliance and virtuosity in spades, but you’ll also be able to marvel at the subtlety and beauty of Mozart at his best. And the dizzying genius of his Marriage of Figaro overture raises the curtain on an awe-inspiring concert.
