Hear the mastery of Mozart in his imposing Overture to Don Giovanni and his spirited and vivacious Symphony No. 35, “Haffner”. A world-premiere created for this concert by acclaimed Uzbekistani composer Dimitri Yanov-Yanovsky, a collaborator with Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, is the centerpiece of this magnificent performance by the Illinois Symphony Orchestra on March 20, 2015.
