Curtis on Tour: Curtis Chamber Orchestra

The Complete Mozart Violin Concertos
Shmuel Ashkenasi, violin | Roberto Díaz, viola

The Curtis Institute of Music educates and trains exceptionally gifted young musicians for careers as performing artists at the highest professional level. This unique professional training (and the full tuition scholarships provided to all of its students) has enabled Curtis alumni like Lang Lang, Samuel Barber, Leonard Bernstein and others, to assume prominent positions in America’s leading orchestras and ensembles around the world. In this return engagement, the future stars in the Curtis Chamber Orchestra will perform the five Mozart violin concertos with five soloists from within the orchestra. The program’s highlight—the magnificent Sinfonia Concertante—features renowned violist Roberto Díaz, president of the Curtis Institute of Music, and legendary violinist and faculty member Shmuel Ashkenasi.


This performance is broken into two parts around an extended dinner break and is sold as a single event.

Curtis on Tour is the Nina von Maltzahn Global Touring Initiative of the Curtis Institute of Music.
