Mozart and Mendelssohn: Reaching for the Stars

  • Mozart—Symphony No. 41, Jupiter Symphony: 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.
  • Mendelssohn – Symphony No. 1 in C Minor, Op. 11: Sure, it was technically the 13th symphony composed by the overachieving child prodigy, but it was the best of the bunch—a romantic piece that takes it sense of style and structure from Mozart and Haydn, and contains a surprisingly Classicist poise and discipline, considering he completed it at the age of 15.

Kansas City Chamber Orchestra

Most orchestras have 80–100 members, but a true chamber orchestra is smaller. The 10–33 instrumentalists that take the stage at the KCCO's concerts harken back to the small-ensemble, pretzel-stick-baton days of Bach, Mozart, Handel, and Vivaldi. The orchestra pays further tribute to these artists by regularly performing their works in addition to more unconventional programs: they've collaborated with artists as diverse as Paul Mesner Puppets, Owen/Cox Dance, and the Kansas City Chorale. Led by Music Director/Conductor Bruce Sorrell, KCCO is celebrating its 28th season of concerts.
