BENEDETTO LUPO piano
MOZART Chaconne from Idomeneo
MOZART Piano Concerto No. 23
MOZART Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter”
Widely regarded as one of the leading interpreters of Mozart, Canadian conductor Bernard Labadie leads an All-Mozart program, starting with the final coronation dance (Chaconne) from the composer’s breakthrough opera Idomeneo.
Italian pianist and winner of the Eighth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Benedetto Lupo performs Mozart’s intimate A Major Piano Concerto, engaging the listener with a sunny disposition of poignancy and serenity.
Mozart’s monumental “Jupiter” symphony – aptly named for the king of the gods – is his largest and is at once exuberant and introspective, charming and complicated.
