Mozart Symphony No. 41 ("Jupiter") 

There’s no denying Mozart was a genius in the most literal sense of the word. Here’s an opportunity to experience the full sweep of his astonishing talent, from his first symphony, composed when he was just eight years old, to his last, the complex and majestic “Jupiter.” In between he produced a staggering body of work, including his first woodwind concerto, composed at age 18. “We are honored as bassoonists that he chose us first among all the woodwind instruments. It’s a masterwork. And it’s written for us and such a fantastic privilege!” says Principal Bassoon Daniel Matsukawa, comparing his role in these concerts to “the lucky tenor or soprano who gets to sing the arias” in the midst of two great symphonic works. The esteemed British conductor and Mozart specialist Jane Glover makes her subscription debut in this effervescent program.
