MOZART: Symphony No. 39 in E-flat major, K. 543
As a child prodigy, she was called “one in a million” by conductor Zubin Mehta. As a psychology student, she wrote a master’s thesis on pain. As an activist, she won the Crystal Award from the World Economic Forum at Davos and spoke before the United Nations. As a performer, she is indomitable, playing dozens of concerts a year. The one and only Midori returns to Aspen to perform Schumann’s only Violin Concerto. This warmly noble score was hidden away for decades and only rediscovered through clues obtained at a séance!
Mozart’s last three symphonies are marvels of musical imagination and invention. Although performed less often than Symphony Nos. 40 or 41 (“Jupiter”), Symphony No. 39 is no less a masterwork. From its grand introduction to the propulsive and witty finale, this effervescent work will enchant you. Also on the program are brilliant artist-faculty members Elaine Douvas and Nancy Allen, who will play arrangements of Schubert songs.
Hear some of the most delicious classical melodies ever written at this inviting concert!
