The Program
Bernstein: Overture to Candide
Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 17 in G major, K.453
Mozart: Adagio and Rondo in C minor for glass harmonica, flute, oboe, viola, and cello, K.617
Gershwin: An American in Paris (New critical edition, edited by Mark Clague)

For this exhilarating evening inspired by fable and the French-American connection, maestro Louis Langrée leads the Festival Orchestra in Bernstein’s Voltaire-inspired overture and a new edition of Gershwin’s score to An American in Paris. The ultimate American Mozart pianist Emanuel Ax ignites the famous melodies of one of Mozart’s finest piano concertos (also Bernstein’s favorite “party” piece). And a rarely performed Mozart chamber work showcases the glass harmonica, invented by another famous American in Paris: Benjamin Franklin.

“Always thoughtful, lyrical, lustrous.”

Washington Post on Emanuel Ax

“There are few surer guarantees of quality in classical music than the combination of Mr. Ax and Mozart.”
