New World Symphony
An eclectic program that spans Biedermeier Vienna to 20th century Switzerland is performed by Anne-Sophie Mutter, “the undisputed queen of violin playing” (The Times, London), with Michael Tilson Thomas conducting the New World Symphony. Mutter is featured in two 20th-century works: Berg’s profoundly moving Violin Concerto and Moret’s rapturous En rêve, a work written for her in 1988. Schubert’s warmly melodic Incidental Music from Rosamunde opens the concert that climaxes with the shimmering orchestral colors of Debussy’s La mer.
