Tonight at 8 pm, WQXR presents a live broadcast of the second evening of the Mostly Mozart Festival. The all-Mozart program includes his Piano Concerto No. 20 with soloist Nelson Freire, and Symphony No. 38, “Prague.”
For today's Showdown, we asked you to vote for your favorite of three other Mozart masterpieces — the Clarinet Concerto in A, the Symphony No. 39 and the Symphony No. 41 "Jupiter" — which will be performed later this month at the festival. The Clarinet Concerto came out victorious and at noon we played the Cleveland Orchestra under the direction of George Szell performing the piece with clarinetist Robert Marcellus.
