SSO to highlight Mozart

The Syracuse Symphony Orchestra will present a concert of All Mozart at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday Jan. 21 and 22 in the Mulroy Civic Center. Music Director Daniel Hege will conduct the concert, featuring soprano Janet Brown.

This concert highlights the remarkable genius of Mozart beginning in his early compositional years as a child prodigy. Starting with his Symphony No. 1, Mozart exemplifies how advanced his compositions were before even reaching his teenage years.

Next, the "Exsultate jubilate" features soprano Janet Brown in a beautiful vocal work that Mozart wrote in his teens. The SSO will also perform the Overture to Mozart's "Marriage of Figaro," a very familiar and accessible piece.

Tunes from this piece are increasingly melodic and memorable and display Mozart's growing compositional ability. Finally, as a bookend to this concert the SSO will perform Mozart's Symphony No. 41, "Jupiter." The final symphonic work Mozart created reflects his extreme intellectual and musical capabilities.

Tickets start at $15. To purchase, call 424-8200 or visit SyracuseSymphony.org.
