Why You'll Love This Concert

The Redlands Symphony has long had a deep connection to the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and our tradition continues this season with our 8th annual celebration of history’s greatest composer.

Mozart’s piano works take center stage this year as renowned pianist Anne-Marie McDermott takes us on a journey through two of the composer’s most fascinating and youthful works for the instrument. Composed when he was just 21, the “Jeunehomme” Concerto has long been regarded by critics and audiences alike as the first undisputed masterpiece of the classical period. Five years later, Mozart produced his 12th Piano Concerto, a more intimate work that nevertheless demonstrates the young composer’s budding genius.

Our evening begins with one of Mozart’s earliest works, the prelude to Apollo et Hyacinthus, composed when the composer was only 11 years old. It concludes with one of his last — the Great G Minor Symphony, one of the composer’s most passionate and emotional works.

Orchestration

Notes

Its galant style—while filled with singing melodies decorated with turns, grace notes, and other simple-seeming niceties—exposes any weakness of technique or sensibility on the pianist’s part. Mozart evidently thought highly of the work, as he performed it himself several times.
