Esteemed soloists and frequent collaborators Joshua Bell and Steven Isserlis team up for a blockbuster rendition of Brahms’s Double Concerto for Violin and Cello. Led by Andrew Manze, principal conductor of the NDR Radiophilharmonie and a composer in his own right, the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra will also perform the maestro’s orchestral arrangement of Bach’s Contrapunctus XIV, followed by the “Reformation” Symphony by Mendelssohn, who tirelessly helped popularize Bach’s music.
