Mozart’s Symphony No. 33, composed while the 23-year-old was still living at home (begrudgingly) in Salzburg, crystallizes the breezy and inviting style of his youth. By the time he performed his final piano concerto twelve years later, Mozart had reached new heights of elegance and sophistication from his adopted home in Vienna. Javier Perianes, bringing “his silvery tone, which has the consistency of aural mercury” (Los Angeles Times), adds his name to the illustrious list of guest pianists who have championed Mozart with Orpheus. Chamber orchestra arrangements by conductor Dennis Russell Davies expand the sweet miniatures that Dvořák composed for friends to play at home. Continuing Orpheus’ American Notes initiative, local composer James Matheson presents a new work in the “home court” of Carnegie Hall.
