If you want to take in a bit of history and culture while hanging out in the Big Apple this summer, check out different activities occurring at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. As part of the 2011 Festival, this August you can enjoy the Mostly Mozart program that will be running from August 2nd to August 27th.
On opening night as well as August 3rd, the program will be the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra with conductor Louis Langrée. On August 4th and 6th, there will be the Don Giovanni concert with the Budapest Festival Orchestra, and conductor/director, Iván Fischer. Prior to the August 6th concert there will be a discussion with Jane Moss and Iván Fischer.
On August 11th, enjoy the sounds of the International Contemporary Ensemble, conducted by Matthias Pintscher at the Alice Truly Hall, Starr Theater. This will be a true celebration of Mozart, opening with a gentle Mozart composition performed in a new Salvatore Sciarrino arrangement. It will end with Gran Partita, one of the maestro’s most majestic works.
