Boston Symphony Orchestra presents masterworks from Mozart, Beethoven and Gossec in this thrilling concert at Boston Symphony Hall. BSO's principal flautist Elizabeth Rowe and principal harpist Jessica Zhou will join French conductor François-Xavier Roth for Mozart's gorgeous Concerto in C for Flute and Harp. The Belgian-born François-Joseph Gossec, whose music the BSO has never performed, was a Haydn contemporary who composed virtually nothing in the final 30 years of his life. One of two noted exceptions is the ebullient 1809 Symphony for Seventeen Parts, which will kick off the evening. By contrast, Beethoven's towering Eroica Symphony, composed five years earlier, ushers in seismic changes in the form, scale and impact of the symphonic genre.
