For more than 60 years, the Mozart Orchestra of New York has been known for impeccable musicianship and innovative, thoughtful programs. Under the leadership of Gerard Schwarz, the group brings Mozart’s final three symphonies to life all in one evening. In Mozart’s time, chamber orchestras were the norm, so this is an opportunity to hear the music as Mozart would have, albeit on modern instruments. All written in 1788, the final three symphonies display an almost impossible variety, from the humor and elegance of 39, the melancholy of 40 and the growing spirituality of number 41.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
