Or, add your own...plenty of eating places located very close to the theater, reasonably priced & a little higher end if that's what you are looking for. Public parking was a little difficult, so might as well park in the parking structure on Maryland as the first 90 mins. are free. Total cost of just the performance was $1!!!!

Quotes & Highlights

“Kahane makes conducting look like a natural extension of his work as an instrumentalist, like something any musician of his caliber should be able to do.” – Boston _Globe   _

Description

Begin your journey with three concertos that trace Mozart’s development as a composer. No.5, written in Salzburg in 1773, is the first of his original piano concertos; the revolutionary no. 9, created in the very month of his 21st birthday, shows the emergence of his blazing genius; and no. 17, written in 1784 when Mozart was the toast of music-loving Vienna, sets the standard of excellence for all the concertos that followed.

Program:

  • Mozart — Piano Concerto No. 5 in D major
  • Mozart — Piano Concerto No. 9 in E-flat major
  • Mozart — Piano concerto No. 17 in G major
  • Jeffrey Kahane, conductor & piano
