An Afternoon All About Amadeus
The Garden State Philharmonic presents all Mozart concert in Toms River, NJ.
The program, under the direction of Maestra Diane Wittry, will feature The Impresario Overture, Horn Concerto No. 3, K. 447 in Eb, Rondo for Violin & Orchestra, Don Giovanni Overture, Overture to the Marriage of Figaro as well as Symphony No. 39 in Eb Major. Each piece is teeming with adventure for the senses, and household themes which have astonished audiences for centuries. "We are taking people through the last ten years of Mozart's life," Wittry explains. "This was amazing he was able to write such joyful music at such a time in his life." While Mozart was at his peak as a composer, he had been dealing with the loss of his child and writing uncommissioned compositions. It was at this time in Mozart's career that some of his most profound works blossomed.
The evening will begin with The Impressario Overture and continue with The Horn Concerto featuring soloist Karl Kramer Johansen. The Rondo for Violin & Orchestra, featuring violin soloist Ruotao Mao, captivates with expressive and lively melodies which will delight both the veteran and the novice listener. The Don Giovanni Overture and the Overture to The Marriage of Figaro will follow, highlighting the masterful arias that brought his operas to life. The Symphony No. 39 in Eb major, famously written in two weeks, remains one of Mozart's best known works as it set unmatched precedents of artistry and precise genius.
