MOZARTIANA

Mozart’s genius is revealed in this program through the drama of his Piano Concerto K.466 in D minor and the sunny “Linz” Symphony K.425 in C Major. Completing this extraordinary musical bouquet is the contemporary perspective of American composer Daniel Kellogg and his transcription of one of Mozart’s most profound works, Ave Verum.

A FINALE of FIRSTS

While the works performed on this final concert of the season are not related in terms of their historical periods, they share one important characteristic in that they are the first of their kind by each composer. How exciting to hear a “first born” of each musical genius on this program! We are delighted to feature The Fantasy for Violin and Orchestra by the versatile Portland composer, Kenji Bunch, whose works run the gamut of styles from classics to bluegrass. This work reflects his unique musical voice and originality.
