Almost Mozart

24/10/2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$36.50 – $44.50

MusicaNova Orchestra Music brings its renown creativity to a program that transforms bits of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s music into something new and different. Mozart’s Symphony No. 37 is an adaptation of the 25th Symphony of Michael Haydn (Joseph’s less-well-known younger brother), with Mozart tacking on a new opening movement and making light changes throughout for a hastily announced 1783 concert.

Max Reger’s variations, built on a theme from Mozart’s Piano Sonata in A major, is a gorgeous example of Reger expanding the bounds of tonality in chromatic exploration.

Setting Mozart aside, the brilliant young pianist Sharon Hui, winner of Arizona Piano Institute’s inaugural concerto competition, joins the orchestra for a pandemic-delayed performance of Mendelssohn’s first piano concerto. The piece features one of the composer’s earliest efforts to weave all three movements into a cohesive whole.
