Here’s to Mozart
His melodic genius. His dramatic timing. His mastery of every genre. With over 600 works to his name, Mozart changed the course of Western music. Many composers have paid homage to him – and tonight, we do too.
Umberto Clerici conducts the night’s celebrations, beginning with Jacques Ibert’s commemorative Hommage à Mozart, followed by Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.17, and finishing with Schubert’s Fifth Symphony – the most ‘Mozartian’ of all his symphonies.
