Quotes & Highlights

Schiff both leads the orchestra and performs on the keyboard in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 9, in E-flat major, K. 271; Symphony No. 40 in G minor; and Piano Concerto No. 27 in B-flat Major, K. 595.

Description

Around the world, from Salzburg to Lincoln Center, people are celebrating the birth of one of the most prolific and venerable composers of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. 

Washington Performing Arts Society commemorates this occasion by presenting Cappella Andrea Barca in an all-Mozart program.

In 1999, pianist Andras Schiff embarked on a seven-year long journey to perform the complete catalogue of Mozart piano concertos with a chamber orchestra he created for that purpose, Cappella Andrea Barca. 

The October performance offers a rare opportunity to hear the culmination of seven years of collaboration by an ensemble playing only the works of the composer they were created to perform.
