Mostly Mozart Festival: Jupiter Symphony at Alice Tully Hall

Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center

1941 Broadway, New York, NY 10023

Conductor Thomas Dausgaard, recently appointed music director of the Seattle Symphony, and passionate pianist Francesco Piemontesi lead this sparkling evening of myth and Mozart. “Soulful and playful” (Cleveland Plain Dealer), Piemontesi sheds light on the nuances of Mozart’s B-flat major concerto, written in the final year of the composer’s life. Dausgaard, who led a “blazing” Missa Solemnis (New York Times) at last year’s White Light Festival, brings radiant clarity to the beloved “Jupiter” Symphony. — Lincoln Center

“Mr. Dausgaard drew a spectrum of colors from the orchestra…he used that color palette to great effect.” – New York Times

“Playing in ways that felt both epic and intimate.” – Los Angeles Times on Francesco Piemontesi

“Piemontesi is a highly intelligent musician, with a wide-ranging repertoire, but his Mozart playing is certainly special, intensely thoughtful and scrupulously prepared.” – Guardian (U.K.)
