Sebastian Lang-Lessing, conductor
|Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart||Serenade: Eine kleine Nachtmusik|
|Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart||Symphony No. 39 in E♭ major|
|Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart||Symphony No. 41 in C major, “Jupiter”|
Sebastian Lang-Lessing brings the Mozart Festival to a glorious conclusion with Mozart’s final symphony, “Jupiter.” It is the longest symphony Mozart composed and was given its nickname by a promoter touting a piano version of the symphony. This finale concert includes the 39th symphony, written in the same summer as the “Jupiter” and the 40th. The concert begins with one of most popular works, a serenade that wasn’t published until decades after the composer’s death.
