Elgar Serenade for Strings in E minor
Mozart Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major, K. 488
OSSCS Composer Competition winner
Elgar From the Bavarian Highlands
When his publisher declared the Serenade for Strings "practically unsaleable," Edward Elgar offered it to another firmit would become one of Elgar's most successful works, as well as one of his personal favorites. Mozart led a troubled and all-too-brief life, but in Vienna over a particularly happy and productive six months, he composed The Marriage of Figaro and three of his most brilliant piano concertos. Music director Clinton Smith will play Mozart's K. 488, conducting from the keyboard. Do you recall a fabulous vacation you took with someone you love? Elgar's From the Bavarian Highlands depicts the picturesque countryside he and his wife visited while on a vacation together. She wrote the words, he wrote the music. Life is good.
