Xian Conducts Mozart

Presented by New Jersey Symphony Orchestra

Simone Dinnerstein “compels the listener to follow her in a journey of discovery filled with unscheduled detours” (NPR). Join her as she explores Mozart’s supremely melodic Piano Concerto No. 23.

WALTON Suite No. 2 from Façade
Sassy, comedic and very British; in its debut, poet Edith Sitwell sat behind a screen and recited her poems set to music through a megaphone, scandalizing the audience. 

MOZART Piano Concerto No. 23
Warm and tender; its sublime, melancholy Adagio speaks of heartbreak and acceptance. 

MOZART Symphony No. 40
Mozart’s second-to-last symphony crackles with a powerful dramatic tension, a musical “appeal to eternity” as his life was cut short.
