About The Performance
The Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra performs two free outdoor concerts in Damrosch Park in celebration of the city in Renée and Robert Belfer Music Director Louis Langrée’s 20th year at the helm. Incorporating Music: Not Impossible wearable technology for Deaf and hard-of-hearing audience members, the program opens with the overture to Bologne’s lone surviving complete opera, L’Amant anonyme. The virtuosic pianist Conrad Tao joins for Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 17 and Still’s “Out of the Silence” from his impressionistic Seven Traceries, arranged for piano, flute, and strings. The evening culminates with Tao and the orchestra performing Gershwin’s jazz-tinged Rhapsody in Blue.
