An Evening of Chamber Music: Mozart’s Gran Partita
- Prokofiev—Sonata in C Major for Cello and Piano: For the embattled composer, this piece was as much for a young musician—cellist Mstislav Rostropovich—as it was a statement. Accused of formalism by the Soviet Union's Zhdanov Doctrine, much of Prokofiev's work was banned in 1948. But this didn't stop him from composing this now-celebrated sonata the next year.
- Mozart—Serenade No. 10 in B-flat Major, Gran Partita: Thirteen instruments make up the seven movements of this renowned serenade that has not only solidified its place in orchestra halls but also its place in pop culture. Where it's been heard: the TV shows How I Met Your Mother and The West Wing.
Minnesota Orchestra celebrates its second century as one of America’s premier symphonic ensembles, gathering accolades from publications such as the New York Times.
