Event Details

Bassoon takes center stage in a festive send-off to the classical season celebrating the genius of Mozart.

Four examples of the genius of Wolfgang Mozart fill our last orchestra program of the summer, all written before the composer’s twentieth birthday. His first opera overture, produced at age eleven, charms as effectively as the serenata notturno, written almost a decade later. Fans of the bassoon will delight in Mozart’s sole surviving concerto for the flexible and expressive instrument, performed by one of its most accomplished practitioners: William Short, principal bassoonist for the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. One of the most compelling of Wolfgang’s teenage-period symphonies, No. 29 in A Major, makes a brilliant finale to the summer.
