What’s Interesting About This Concert
- Astor Piazzolla was an Argentine tango composer who fused jazz and classical music. Expect seductive Latin American rhythms and drama in the Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, with Concertmaster Jennifer Cho taking center stage.
- The first of a final series of three symphonies written in quick succession towards the end of his life, it’s unclear whether Mozart ever got to hear his Symphony No. 39 performed.
- French composer Maurice Ravel, best known for Boléro, composed Le Tombeau de Couperin (The Tombstone of Couperin) as a memorial tribute to his friends.
