Mozart

The Detroit Symphony Orchestra continues its Mozartfest with another free live concert webcast, today at 8:00 PM EST (GMT -5).  You can watch it at http://dso.org/live.  The concert is preceded by a lecture on Mozart in Vienna and Prague, which begins at 7:00 PM.  Other lectures, Mozart as a Citizen of Europe and Mozart’s Overtures can be seen on YouTube.

Here’s the program:

Overture to La Clemenza di Tito
Concertone
Horn Concerto No. 3
Clarinet Concerto

Here you can see a cute little promotional video for the MozartFest.  The Brahmsfest red hedgehogs (and other mascots) make cameo appearances.

And here is the Overture to The Marriage of Figaro, conducted by Leonard Slatkin wearing a Mozart wig.

  1. Hmm, Slatkin is standing in front of a podium with no score on it.
