“You need not have attended the Mostly Mozart Festival for decades to appreciate what Louis Langrée has done for its orchestra.”

New York Times

“The most exciting violinist in the world.”

Strings on Patricia Kopatchinskaja

The Festival closes with Mozart’s towering Requiem, which consumed the composer in his final days. Echoing its themes, Frank Martin’s ravishing violin concerto Polyptyque is intriguingly combined with Bach chorales.

There is no late seating.

This performance is approximately one hour and 55 minutes with one intermission.
