About The Performance
One of the most exciting conductors on the international scene, Jonathon Heyward is joined by superstar violinist Joshua Bell in a breathtaking evening with the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra. The program opens with Carlos Simon’s Fate Now Conquers, written in 2020 and inspired by a journal entry from Beethoven’s notebook, written in 1815. Bell performs Vieuxtemps’ dramatic Violin Concerto No. 5 and the slow and meditative Adoration, written in 1951 by Price, the first Black woman composer to have a piece played by a major American orchestra. The program culminates with Beethoven’s thrilling and humorous Symphony No. 2.
