Mozart’s Flute & Harp Concerto Concert
February 8 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
East Coast meets West in Springfield when principals of two powerhouse orchestras, the Metropolitan Opera and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, meet for an evening of musical brilliance. With powerful, virtuoso playing, Emmanuel Ceysson (principal harpist of the Met) sweeps away the clichés associated with his instrument. He is joined by Denis Bouriakov (principal flutist of the LA Phil), often called the “Paganini of the flute.” Exciting and varied, this night spans the old world to the new, from Mozart’s incredibly beautiful Flute and Harp Concerto and Beethoven’s bouncy Music for a Ballet on Horseback to Debussy’s light and beautiful Sacred and Profane Dances, the dance-like percussive intensity of Argentinian Alberto Ginastera’s Harp Concerto, and Leonard Bernstein’s expressive Halil.
