W. A. MOZART Sinfonia concertante for Violin, Viola and Orchestra
SIBELIUS Symphony No. 5
Awaken the senses with Sibelius’ heroic Fifth Symphony, a rollercoaster of texture, mood and sound that culminates in an all-out, full-blown triumph. Mozart’s Sinfonia concertante highlights some of his most eloquent and utterly divine string music ever written, particularly in the slow-tempo second movement. The work features Kansas City Symphony’s own Miller Nichols Concertmaster Noah Geller and Principal Violist Christine Grossman as soloists. Renowned Finnish conductor and composer Esa-Pekka Salonen wrote LA Variations to showcase orchestral “virtuosity and power.” Tickets from $25.
