Mozart: Symphony No. 25
A buoyant finale to the MasterWorks season! Anyone who saw the hit film Amadeus will enjoy hearing the opening music from it – 17 year old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s brilliant Symphony No. 25. Antonín Dvorák was a newlywed when he wrote Serenade for Strings and it remains one of his most popular works to this day because of its beautiful, memorable melody. Villa Lobos’ Bachianas Brasileiras No. 4 is one of his nine compositions written as suites fusing the Baroque style of writing with elements of Brazilian folk. Bravo!
