Mozart’s Symphony No. 41 — a work of emotional profundity, staggering technical mastery, and titanic influence. The aftershocks of this mesmerizing work continue to be felt among performers, composers, and listeners alike, with Sir George Grove crowning the symphony “the greatest orchestral work of the world which preceded the French Revolution.”
Music Director Earl Lee directs these concerts timed to coincide with Mozart’s birthday. Plus, 2023 Sphinx Medal of Excellence Award winner Tommy Mesa joins as soloist to perform Jessie Montgomery’s impassioned response to recent social and political unrest alongside Haydn’s lyrical and uplifting Cello Concerto.
Please note that this program will be offered in two venues: Ann Arbor’s Michigan Theater, and the A2SO’s debut at Detroit’s Orchestra Hall, home of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
