Mostly Mozart Kicks Off in New York

Attention, music and culture fans in New York: The 45th season of the Mostly Mozart Festival starts in Lincoln Center today, and runs through August 27.

What's on the schedule for this year's edition? The Festival will offer more than 34 events, including opera, concerts, dance, pre-concert recitals, late-night performances, and lectures, and features music ranging from Baroque and Classical to Neoclassical and contemporary. In addition to Mozart, the music of Igor Stravinsky will also be a special focus of this summer’s festival in nine programs spanning four venues. Music Director Louis Langrée, in his ninth season, will conduct the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra in eight concerts, combining Festival favorites including Mozart’s beloved Requiem, an expanded exploration of Beethoven’s music and two distinctly different Stravinsky works. New York’s contemporary ensemble ICE (International Contemporary Ensemble) also begins a three-year Festival residency this summer and is the centerpiece of the festival’s Stravinsky focus. Mozart’s masterwork, the opera Don Giovanni, makes its Festival debut this summer in a special staged concert led and directed by acclaimed Hungarian conductor Iván Fischer featuring his own Budapest Festival Orchestra, both in their festival debuts.
