The Two Sides of Mozart

Why You'll Love This Concert

The Redlands Symphony season finale features two faces of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. His elegant, often wistful Clarinet Concerto (performed by Kathryn Nevin) serves as a contrast to the majestic intensity and drama of his magnum opus for choir and orchestra, the Requiem. Over 150 singers will join the orchestra to bring Mozart’s final masterpiece to life.

At this concert, the Redlands Symphony is hosting a food drive to benefit the Family Service Association of Redlands. As part of this effort, we are asking that each patron attending the April 6 concert consider bringing a donation of a canned (or other non-perishable) food item.

The Family Service Association of Redlands has been serving low-income and homeless families in the community since 1898, providing services ranging from clothing and food banks to Good Samaritan loans and budgeting classes.

Notes

To say that Mozart’s last year was an extraordinary one could well be an understatement. Indeed, a merely ordinary composer might have been proud to have accomplished in years what he accomplished during that period.

Notes

In his Requiem Mass, Mozart enjoyed the dubious distinction of being able to knowingly leave behind a last testament. Even though not completed, the work stands today as one of the greatest expressions of faith ever cast as a work of art.

Symphony Season Closes with Mozart

04/09/13 • by Sherli Leonard • The Riverside Press-Enterprise

The concert left no doubt about conductor Jon Robertson's passion for Mozart and the musicians' willingness to follow wherever he led them through such diverse expressions as the Clarinet Concerto and the Requiem Mass in D minor.

Attended the concert last Saturday evening and it was an amazing performance. Dr. Wilson as always got the absolute best from the orchestra, I am so impressed with the orchestra members and how they respond to Dr. Wilson’s direction. The soloist was stunning. So glad to be there and will see you at the next concert!
