Indulge in a delightful evening of truly Classical music featuring not one, but two symphonies by Mozart, accompanied by a trumpet concerto from one of Mozart’s contemporaries and pupils, Hummel. Symphony No. 31, known as the Paris Symphony, was composed during Mozart’s visit to the City of Light when he was only 22 years old and still searching for a job. Symphony No. 40, also known as the Great G-minor Symphony, transcended the Classical era and inspired some of the great Romantics to come, including Beethoven and Schubert.
