ASHER FISCH CONDUCTS MOZART AND BARTOK

18/08/2016 - 20/08/2016 ASHER FISCH CONDUCTS MOZART AND BARTOK

Delightful Mozart meets Bohemian Bartók – a concert of contrasts. Since its triumphant first performance in Boston in 1944, Béla Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra has been a towering classic of twentieth-century orchestral music. A vivacious, irrepressible masterpiece, brimming with orchestral colour and crackling with rhythmic vitality, it is a virtuosic showpiece for both orchestra and conductor. To open this concert, we welcome WASO’s Principal Horn David Evans as soloist in Mozart’s delightful Fourth Horn Concerto.
