Stravinsky, Mozart, Piazzolla & Haydn 88
- Wed 8:00 PM Jul 15, 2020
Join the Utah Symphony on a musical journey from the European music of Mozart and Haydn to the tango of South America.
The two Suites for Small Orchestra, orchestrated in 1921 and 1925, are based on themes from two sets of piano duets Stravinsky wrote as teaching pieces for young musicians.
Utah Symphony Principal Flute, Mercedes Smith, performs Mozart’s Flute Concerto No. 2. This piece is a reworked version of the composer’s earlier Oboe concerto, commissioned by a local doctor, who likely had his hands full with this virtuosic work.
Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla took the tango of his youth to new places, infusing it with elements of classical music and jazz and creating his own distinctive style. Classical music plus the Tango equals Piazzola’s Tangazo!
Haydn’s Symphony No. 88, written two years before the outbreak of the French Revolution, foreshadows the music to come from Europe in the coming decades.
