Mozart wrote his final three symphonies in a span of about two months. He may never have heard them performed by a professional orchestra and he certainly would never have heard all three on the same night.
Month of Mozart on WQXR culminates with a live broadcast at 8 pm on Saturday, Nov. 30, of the New York Philharmonic performing Mozart’s three final symphonies. Music Director Alan Gilbert leads the orchestra in Mozart’s Symphonies number 39, 40 and 41. In the course of these three sublime masterpieces, we hear all different facets of the human experience.
WQXR's Elliott Forrest and Annie Bergen host the broadcast live from Avery Fisher Hall.
