Symphony Night Premieres
Mozart and R. Strauss
On Saturday, 9 December 9 2023, our fourth concert will be streamed live on Symphony.live. The program included Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major and Richard Strauss' "Eine Alpensinfonie", two audience favourites conducted by our Music Director. The guest was pianist and Mozart specialist Fazıl Say, whom we had the pleasure of welcoming several times as a focus artist in the 2022/23 season. The program and the protagonists on stage delighted our audience: all three concerts at the end of March 2023 were sold out. Link
