The Symphony Presents Mozart, Rossini & Beethoven

Sunday, March 18, 2018 4:00PM
Lensic Performing Arts Center

Guest conductor and Grammy-nominated violinist Andrés Cárdenes serenades Santa Fe into spring with Mozart’s melodic and carefree second violin concerto. From Rossini’s La gazza ladra, The Symphony performs the overture so famously (allegedly) composed while the opera’s producer had Rossini locked in a room to aid his concentration. To conclude the performance, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 4 will fill The Lensic’s hall, a work so elegant and graceful that Berlioz claimed it must be the work of the Archangel Michael rather than any mortal.
