Yannick leads an all-Mozart program displaying the seemingly infinite range of his musical gifts. The “Haffner” Symphony, named for the commissioning Salzburg family, began as a serenade, but Mozart tweaked and enhanced it into its present form, now recognized as a true breakthrough in his musical style. The Symphony No. 40, perhaps his most famous symphony, is also hailed as a turning point in composition. In the Sinfonia concertante, a hybrid of symphony and concerto, Mozart beguiles with rich, brilliant music for both orchestra and soloists—First Associate Concertmaster Juliette Kang and Principal Viola Choong-Jin Chang.
