Best of Baroque and Mozart: Tucson Symphony Orchestra Masterworks Program
February 5, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0
Enjoy the best of Baroque and a showcase for Mozart’s considerable talents when Markus Huber conducts the Tucson Symphony Orchestra MasterWorks Series program, Brandenburg, Jupiter and More Points of Interest. The performance will be held 7:30 p.m. on Friday, February 5 at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, 7575 N. Paseo Del Norte in Tucson. The program will open with Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 and close with Mozart’s final symphony, the incomparable Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter,” with the finale that musicologists agree ranks among his greatest works.
As a soloist, Markus Huber worked from an early age with notable musicians such as Herbert von Karajan, James Levine and Nicolaus Harnoncourt. He began his conducting career as professor and conductor at the Landestheater Detmold. Since 2008, Huber has been the Music Director of Opera Pforzheim and been on the podium at many renowned orchestras, including the Philadelphia Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony. He made his TSO debut in 2008 conducting The Lord of the Rings Symphony and has conducted both Classics and SuperPops! programs since then.
Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos are the epitome of complex, appealing Baroque works with the third presenting an integration of great beauty. The Brandenburgs inspired Stravinsky to craft an updated form in his concerto, Dumbarton Oaks, written during his “neo-classical” period.
Jacques Ibert’s Divertimentois characteristic of the good nature and brilliance of his works, brimming with wit and high spirits. Mozart’s “Jupiter” Symphony ranks as one of the world’s grandest symphonies.
