Spend St. Patrick’s Day with the Monterey Symphony and Mozart! The Overture from his highly lauded and loved opera, Don Giovanni, will begin the fourth program, entirely dedicated to the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This concert set will also feature the first and last symphonies by Mozart: Symphony No. 1, KV 16; and Symphony No. 41, KV 551, commonly known as the ‘Jupiter.’ Symphony No. 1 was composed in 1764 while he was still eight years of age during a tour of England, and the influence of Johann Christian Bach – or English Bach as he is known – is evident in his most green symphony. The Jupiter symphony was Mozart’s longest and final contribution to the genre, written in 1788, named for the largest and grandest of planets. Enjoy March Mozart-Madness with the Monterey Symphony in a spectacular concert!
