“Our music director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and the Orchestra are focusing on three late symphonies of Mozart — 39, 40 & 41. Three wonderful symphonies he wrote at the end of his life,” explains Vice President of Artistic Planning Jeremy Rothman.
The celebration will feature four performances over three days.
“[We’re] Also bringing in a fantastic young pianist, Jan Lisiecki, who’s also featuring three of Mozart’s pinnacle Piano Concertos, numbers 20, 21, and 22,” Rothman adds.
And he says this is a great time for people to come see the Orchestra play multiple programs in one week.
