The Utah Symphony’s vibrant conductor, Thierry Fischer, brings his “exciting, colorful, and fervent” touch (New York Times) to an explosive evening of music in his Mostly Mozart Festival debut. Between Haydn’s spirited “Fire” Symphony and Mozart’s powerful, incendiary G-minor Symphony, pianist and esteemed Mozart interpreter Martin Helmchen delves into the composer’s regal C-major Piano Concerto, K.503.

Please note: Andrés Orozco-Estrada, who was originally scheduled to conduct, has had to withdraw from these performances due to a back problem.

“Mr. Helmchen has a noble bearing and a noble sound, shaping lines as elegant and clean as a Greek temple’s.” New York Times
