SCHUMANN: Violin Concerto in D minor
MARTIN: Three Dances for Oboe, Harp, and Strings
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!

Tickets will remain on hold for 30 minutes.
