Mozart and the Divine
Mozart returns to the Classics season with his delightful Piano Concerto No. 23, masterfully played by young artist Ray Ushikubo, who made his BPO debut on last year’s Pops season opener. Mozart’s inspiration, Johann Sebastian Bach, takes a turn with his gallant “St. Anne Prelude & Fugue” transcribed for full orchestra. The performance concludes with Scriabin’s mystical Symphony No. 3, “The Divine Poem.” A triplet of Baroque, Classical and Romantic masters, perfect for both a first-timer or a seasoned music appreciator. JoAnn Falletta conducts.
Come at 9:30 AM on Friday for complimentary coffee and doughnuts. On Saturday, come at 7 PM to hear directly from the artists in “Musically Speaking,” hosted by JoAnn Falletta.
