MOZART Symphony No. 38 in D major, K. 504, Prague
MOZART Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major, K. 219, Turkish

A whirlwind grand tour of music by Mozart! The journey begins with the piano concerto declared "one of the greatest wonders of the world" (Alfred Brendel), then travels through the rich harmonies and bohemian colors of the Prague symphony, arriving at the delightful Turkish violin concerto.


June 26

Joshua Bell, violin

VIVALDI The Four Seasons
PIAZZOLLA The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires

Virtuoso violinist Joshua Bell takes center stage for this lively linkage of Italian Baroque with 20th century tango. Vivaldi's hugely popular violin concertos alternate with Piazzolla's rapturous re-imaginings for a vibrant exploration of each composer's time and temperament.


June 27

Joshua Bell, violin
Kyu-Young Kim, violin
Hyobi Sim, viola
Zlatomir Fung, cello
Shai Wosner, piano

SCHUBERT Piano Trio in E-flat major, D. 929
BRAHMS Piano Quintet in F minor, Op. 34

Tonight's spotlight is on the "chamber" part of chamber orchestra, with a program that marries powerful music with small-scale intimacy. Schubert's trio is monumental in length, breadth, and wealth of thematic ideas, and the darkly gorgeous Piano Quintet by Brahms is widely considered his crowning achievement in chamber music.
