Mozart Symphony No. 25
Xian Zhang explores one of Mozart’s most gripping and dramatic symphonies, often recognized by audiences as the opening music for the Academy Award-winning film Amadeus.
Steven Mackey RIOT (World Premiere, New Jersey Symphony Co-Commission)
Fittingly, the New Jersey Symphony has tapped leading New Jersey composer and frequent Symphony collaborator Steven Mackey to celebrate the centennial with a new commission featuring original texts by former US Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith.
Mozart Overture to Don Giovanni
Mozart perfectly sets the scene to one of the most popular operas of all time with an overture highlighting all of the drama, deception and damnation that follows.
Bruckner Te Deum
The glorious Te Deum was a high point for composer Anton Bruckner, who called this joyful choral work “the pride of my life.”
The world premiere of Steven Mackey’s RIOT is sponsored by Linda K. and William T. Walker.
