From July 25 to August 19, the Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center will fill the NYC summer with classical music. As one of New York’s biggest celebrations of Mozart, the three weeks of orchestra, opera, chamber ensembles and especially this year’s performance of Don Giovanni will make Mozart fans’ hearts flutter like a well-executed trill.
This year’s festival will be more than just Mozart though—the festival’s opening program, The Singing Heart, will be an evening filled with youthful hope and Mozart-era folk songs sung by the Young People’s Chorus of New York City.
Schubert’s Winterreise and other works will also make a grand appearance under the genius of guest conductors Edward Gardner and Gianandrea Noseda. Beethoven will be there too in performances by the Danish String Quartet and Les Arts Florissants, among others.
However, Mostly Mozart isn’t just to celebrate the music its attendees have heard before. Contemporary composer David Lang’s man made will make its New York premiere during the festival. man made will be performed by pianists Kirill Gerstein, Beatrice Rana, and Sō Percussion and the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra.
