Mostly Mozart's eclectic summer music celebration returns to Lincoln Center for a series of exciting concerts showcasing works by Berlioz, Beethoven, Haydn and, of course, Mozart, with performances by some of the world's leading musicians and conductors. The first weekend of concerts celebrates Berlioz's masterpiece Symphonie fantastique, a phantasmagorical adventure written to impress an Irish actress who'd later become his wife. Next is Beethoven's final piano concerto, the Emperor, widely considered among the composer's crowning achievements -- a thrilling work composed between 1809 and 1811 in Vienna and dedicated to Beethoven's close friend and pupil, Archduke Rudolf of Austria. Finally, the works of Prokofiev, Shostakovich and Beethoven will be performed by young piano prodigy Yuja Wang, who's rocketed to the top of the classical music world with her charismatic stage presence and astounding technical prowess, under the baton of celebrated Finnish conductor Osmo Vänskä. Please see the full event description for a detailed schedule of concerts and performers. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: New York PhilharmonicThe New York Philharmonic is by far the oldest symphony orchestra in the United States, and one of the oldest in the world. Founded in 1842 by a group of local musicians led by American-born Ureli Corelli Hill, the Orchestra currently plays some 180 concerts a year. On December 18, 2004, the Philharmonic gave its 14,000th concert--a milestone unmatched by any other orchestra in the world.
Since 1917 the Philharmonic has recorded nearly 2,000 albums; more than 500 recordings are currently available. In February 2003, the Orchestra was honored by The Recording Academy with a Trustees Award in recognition of its outstanding contributions to the industry and American culture. Members of the Philharmonic also performed on the 45th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, televised internationally from New York's Madison Square Garden -- the first time that a major symphony orchestra had performed live on the Grammy Awards.
