Mostly Mozart Festival Night Gala 2003


Episode Info

The Mostly Mozart Festival welcomes new music director Louis Langrée, as it opens its 37th season with a program featuring works by Beethoven and Mendelssohn, as well as Mozart. "We try not to have something too monochromatic," says Langrée of the Festival's programming philosophy, and this concert supplements the overture from Mozart's "La nozze di Figaro" and arias from "La clemenza di Tito" (sung by mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe) with Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto No. 1 in G Minor (featuring soloist Lang Lang) and Beethoven's Symphony No. 4. Beverly Sills hosts.
