From precocious genius to brilliant maturity, this all-Mozart program spans the full spectrum of the composer’s career, bookended by our namesake’s first and last symphonies. Pianist Richard Goode, “one of the foremost Mozart pianists America has produced” (Chicago Tribune), explores the delicate Twelfth Piano Concerto by the Austrian prodigy, who was himself the greatest pianist in Vienna.
The August 9 concert will be broadcast live on Classical 105.9 FM WQXR and wqxr.org.
