Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 4: Masterworks

The Florida Orchestra welcomes back former resident conductor Thomas Wilkins to conduct Mozart’s sunny and lyrical Violin Concerto No. 4, featuring Vadim Gluzman. The beloved maestro also will take audiences to the famous Fountains of Rome by Respighi and On the Waterfront Symphonic Suite by Leonard Bernstein. Kicking off the concert is Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres), which composer Missy Mazzoli describes as “music in the shape of a solar system, a collection of rococo loops that twist around each other within a larger orbit.”

Please note: The conductor for this program has changed.

Bonus! For every Masterworks concert, Michael Francis has personally chosen a surprise “mystery piece” to enhance the live experience. What will it be this weekend?

Llevará al público a las famosas Fuentes de Roma de Respighi y a la Suite sinfónica On the Waterfront de Leonard Bernstein. El inicio del concierto es Sinfonia para Orbiting Spheres, que la compositora Missy Mazzoli describe como “música en forma de sistema solar, una colección de bucles rococó que se retuercen entre sí dentro de una órbita más grande”.

¡”Prima – Bonus”! Para cada concierto de Masterworks, Michael Francis ha elegido personalmente una “pieza misteriosa” sorpresa para mejorar la experiencia en vivo. ¿Qué será este fin de semana?
