Saturday Symphony 2
Mozart's Symphony No. 40 is also known as the Great G Minor Symphony. Its fervent and famous opening explodes with passion as the music unfolds with turbulent urgency. SMF faculty artist Alexander Kerr takes center stage for Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3. Brilliant and bold, this piece dances with bravura. Stravinsky's Dumbarton Oaks is rhythmic and accessible, showcasing the Festival student participants. The music of Mozart and Stravinsky may be summed up with one word: perfection.
