The iconic Overture to Marriage of Figaro from legendary Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart will open the evening, followed by the Pulcinella Suite from the late-Romantic and early modern era Russian composer Igor Stravinsky. According to Maestro Nowak, Mozart and Stravinsky are two composers “who just go well together.” The evening closes with guest piano soloist Robert Thies returning for a performance of Ludwig Van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major, Op. 58, a piece which exemplifies Beethoven as both a master of the neoClassical style and transformative Romantic figure.

There will be a pre-concert lecture that will enhance your enjoyment and understanding of the music. This Pre-Concert Lecture is FREE and open to all concert goers. The lecture will be held just before the concert, beginning at 6:50PM and ending at 7:10PM.

Complete Program:

Wolfang Amadeus Mozart Overture to Marriage of Figaro
