Alain Trudel, conductor
Ran Dank, piano

Mozart - Overture to The Marriage of Figaro
Shostakovich - Piano Concerto No. 1
Mozart - Symphony No. 41 in C Major "Jupiter"

Back by popular demand, pianist Ran Dank returns for Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 1 composed in the wake of Soviet government censorship. The performance closes with the last symphonic composition of Mozart's illustrious career, the giant and grand Jupiter Symphony.

Anja Bihlmaier, conductor
Kirk Toth and Téa Prokes, violin

Haydn - Symphony No. 85 in B-Flat Major "La Reine"
Schnittke - Moz-Art à la Haydn for Two Violins and Orchestra
Mozart - Symphony No. 36 in C Major "Linz"

Witty and inviting, Moz-Art à la Haydn connects two of the greatest composers of the Classical Era: Franz Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Based on surviving fragments of Mozart's lost "pantomime music," with a special nod to one of Haydn's most famous symphonies, this piece is sure to delight! We open with Haydn's Symphony No. 85 "La Reine" or "The Queen" and conclude with Mozart's dazzling Symphony No. 36, written in just four days on a trip to the Austrian city of Linz.

Alain Trudel, conductor
Blake Pouliot, violin

Britten - Simple Symphony
Mozart - Violin Concerto No. 5
Mendelssohn - Symphony No. 4 "Italian"

Audiences have long been inspired by amazing child prodigies in the music world. In this program, we present music written early in the lives of three musical geniuses, who at remarkably young ages began creating masterful musical compositions brimming with imaginative possibilities.

Jean-François Rivest, conductor
Gerardo Perez Capdevila, guitar

Mozart - Eine Kleine Nachtmusik
Rodrigo - Concierto de Aranjuez
Mozart - Symphony No. 25 in G Minor

According to Gramaphone Magazine, "Joaquín Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez is arguably one of the most popular concertos of all time, thanks in no small measure to the extraordinary beauty of its central Adagio." Written for classical guitar and orchestra, this piece provides beautiful contrast to Mozart's famous Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and his dramatic and tragic Symphony No. 25.
