“Menahem and Mozart”

Sinfonia da Camera
Menahem Pressler, piano
Ian Hobson, piano, music director, and conductor

Menahem Pressler, internationally renowned pianist and founder of the Beaux Arts Trio, joins Sinfonia da Camera in an all-Mozart program that is sure to captivate.

The ever-popular and kinetic Overture to Le Nozze di Figaro opens the program, followed by Pressler’s rendition of the Piano Concerto No. 23. Then audiences will be afforded a rare treat as two world-class pianists, Hobson and Pressler, unite for a performance of the Concerto for Two Pianos, No. 10, before the evening concludes with Mozart’s last and perhaps greatest symphonic work, the “Jupiter” Symphony.
