Program Notes

You don't want to miss this concert featuring pieces by Mozart and inspired by Mozart. We'll hear Mozart's Symphony No. 35 and Concerto for Flute and Harp in C Major with our very own principal musicians as the soloists. Next is the overture to Los esclavos felices written by 19th-century child prodigy composer Juan Crisóstomo Arriaga who is often referred to as "The Spanish Mozart". The concert finale is Symphony No. 94 in G Major written by one of Mozart's teachers: Franz Josef Haydn.


Concert Highlights

  • Guest conductor José-Luis Novo leads the Palm Beach Symphony orchestra in this concert featuring pieces by Mozart and inspired by Mozart.
  • Just like Mozart, Arriaga was a child prodigy and an accomplished composer who died young, and because of this, he was nicknamed "the Spanish Mozart" after he died.
  • Symphony principal musicians Nadine Asin and Kay Kemper perform Mozart's instantly recognizable concerto for flute and harp.
