Tchaikovsky & Mozart

Conducted by Michael Stern
November 2 & 4 7:30 PM

You are invited to attend a Prelude presentation before the Thursday, November 2nd and Saturday, November 4th evening concerts, starting at 6:45 PM in the Upper Circle Lobby (3rd Floor). This talk by musicologist D.T. Baker is a fantastic way to learn more about the pieces being performed in your concert.

Mozart’s beloved final symphony got its nickname from a publisher who was reminded of Jupiter’s mythological thunderbolts. His "divine spark of genius” comes through in the intricate details hidden under glorious melodies. Music by Kodály, who composed his catchy suite based on folk tunes he found in an old book of dances from his native Hungary, rounds out this exciting program.
