The Program

  • Mozart—Overture and Ballet Music from Idomeneo: Mozart’s notoriously difficult opera begins with bombast and bustle, as fast-moving string passages are tempered with more languorous sections tinged with sorrow.
  • Mozart—Piano Concerto No. 23: Immediately popular upon its release, this work contains the only adagio in all of Mozart’s concertos, a pensive centerpiece that bridges a dramatic opening and an upbeat, sprightly ending.
  • Mozart—Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter”: In his final symphony, Mozart starts with a bombast nodding to the titular god, journeys through tones suggesting both comedy and melancholia, and ends with a daring double fugue.

New Jersey Symphony Orchestra

In 1922, the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra performed its first concert at the Montclair Art Museum. They weren't called by that name yet, and they only had 19 string players at the time, but it was a show that established the orchestra as an important organ in the artistic community. It also might have been the last time the group was largely unknown. The ensemble quickly swelled in size, talent, and popularity as it racked up one significant achievement after another. In 1968, Henry Lewis joined the company to become the first African-American music director of a major symphony. The orchestra reached new heights under his leadership, taking the stage at Carnegie Hall and at the Garden State Arts Center with Luciano Pavarotti—a guest who joined the musicians again in 1984 to perform the first-ever classical program at the humble speakeasy known as Madison Square Garden. The group's illustrious career continued into the late '80s, as it performed live on PBS and played a concert of Bernstein works that won the admiration of the man himself.

Today, the NJSO continues to confidently play into the 21st century. Under the current leadership of Music Director Xian Zhang, the ensemble shares seasons of classical, pops, and family programs, along with outdoor concerts, and educational projects. But the group has never forgotten its humble beginnings, maintaining a commitment to the community that caused The Wall Street Journal to call them “a vital, artistically significant musical organization."
