Gateway Chamber Orchestra: Magical Mozart

  • January 27, 4pm
  • Mabry Concert Hall
  • website

In 1783 Mozart stopped in Linz, Austria on the heels of an unproductive visit to Salzburg, in which he had hoped to convince his father of the worthiness of his planned marriage to his eventual wife, Constanze. Upon  arriving, he learned that a performance of one of his symphonies had been announced - except that Mozart was unaware of these plans, and thus had no sheet music with him. So, in a period of four days, he composed Symphony No. 36. Gateway Chamber Orchestra combines this work with a less hastily written tribute by Tchaikovsky: his orchestral suite known as Mozartina
