Steeped in passion, violence and grief, Mozart's Symphony No. 40 is widely regarded as his most emotional work. Tragic and intense in tone, the moving piece is thought to be the inspiration for Beethoven's Symphony No. 5, one of the most famous and frequently played pieces of music of all time. In addition to the incredible Symphony No. 40, you'll also hear Music Director David Lockington display his virtuosic cello skills as he performs Sawyer's Cello Concerto, and also experience Beethoven's Egmont Overture in this concert at Pasadena's Ambassador Auditorium, led by guest conductor Nicholas McGegan, OBE.
