Beethoven and Mozart


Two favorites of classical music await you at this concert, masterfully led by Music Director Fabio Luisi. Fellow-Italian, violinist Francesca Dego, joins him and the DSO for Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, a magisterial creation of dramatic impact some violinists have dubbed their “Mount Everest.” Scaling this musical mountain lets performers reveal their emotional depth in lyrical passages and their technical mastery in high-voltage fireworks. Mozart’s regal “Jupiter” Symphony, aptly named for the king of the gods, with drums and trumpets lending a stately feel, set a crown upon the composer’s symphonic output.
