INTERMISSION

Mozart - Symphony No. 25

Thursday, January 10, 2013

8:00 pm Verizon Hall

It is The Philadelphia Orchestra as you rarely hear it, our virtuosic musicians coming together as an ensemble to shape a musical interpretation that is all their own. Concertmaster David Kim leads Mozart's A Little Night Music from his seat at the front of the violin section as it would have been done in Mozart's time, without a conductor. The frenetic beginning of Symphony No. 25 was chosen to open the memorable film Amadeus. And Imogen Cooper, featured on the Amadeus soundtrack, also leads from the keyboard in Mozart's biggest and most revolutionary piano concerto, the rebellious C-minor Piano Concerto.
