- Louis Langrée leads an 18th century program in which music's most urbane and cosmopolitan composer takes on the urbane and cosmopolitan city of Paris, in symphonic form. Parisians so loved Mozart's Paris symphony, they demanded many encores.
This concert also features Mozart's lovely concerto for flute and harp. A beloved concert favorite now, it would have been considered an usual combination of instruments at the time.
- CSO Music Director Langrée, who also serves as Music Director of NYC's Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center, is a pre-eminent interpreter of Mozart's music.
