There is a reason that when people list great musicians off the top of their head, most of the time Mozart will be mentioned. This man created some of the most inspiring and timeless music ever known to man. While his brilliance is constantly being celebrated in symphonies, films and newly created and inspired music, he is also honored annually in a much more focused and exciting manner. Mostly Mozart is a music festival that will be taking place at the Lincoln Center from July 25th- August 3rd this summer.
One of the most anticipated acts of this year’s festival is the Emerson String Quartet who will be accompanied by acclaimed clarinetist Martin Frost. Renee and Robert Belfer along with Director Louis Langree will be leading the Festival Orchestra who plans to perform Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, which promises to be a powerful and unique live music experience.
In addition to these exciting performances, the venue — The Lincoln Center — will provide an ideal atmosphere for the festival. The product of a recent $1.2 Billion renovation, this center, whose focus is on arts and education, will be sure to provide the classy and thoughtful accommodations necessary to properly enjoy these mature musical sounds.
The music of Mozart is celebrated because it continuously stands against the test of time in emotionally affecting listeners from generation after generation. The wonder of this festival is to see that affect live on through some of the most respected and high-caliber performers in New York City and the world. This promises to be truly unlike any other music festival and for those available to attend, you can be sure that it will be a gratifying and worthwhile experience. Whether you are an enthusiast of classical music, or a fan of music in general, or just want to experience all of the cultural offerings in New York City, Mostly Mozart is definitely an event to check out.
