Mostly Mozart

Jennifer Koh - LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER: Mostly Mozart Festival Opening Night

Thursday, July 28, 2011

 

Airs on Live from Lincoln Center Tuesday, August 2 from 7-9 p.m.

 

LIVE FROMLINCOLN CENTER will be there—and so can you—as The Mostly Mozart Festival 2011 opens with a gala concert event. Louis Langrée, Music Director of the Mostly Mozart concerts, will be on the podium and the soloists will be violinist Christian Tetzlaff; violist Antoine Tamestit; and soprano Susanna Phillips. The program combines examples of three of the many sides—opera, concerto solo, and symphony—of the musician considered by many to have been the greatest composer ever.

“Mostly Mozart Festival Opening Night” airs on Live from Lincoln Center Tuesday, August 2 from 7-9 p.m. on WTVP 47.1.

Mozart as opera composer will be represented by the sparkling Overture to The Marriage of Figaro and the accompanied recitative and rondo "non mi dir" from the Second Act of Don Giovanni, in which Donna Anna (Phillips) begs for forgiveness from her fiancé, Don Ottavio, for her transgressions. We'll also hear the concert aria Bella mia fiamma. The two "big" works on the program are the sublime Sinfonia Concertante for Violin, Viola and Orchestra (Tetzlaff and Tamestit), and the "Linz" Symphony, No. 36.
