What’s interesting about this concert:
• Gluck, a German and possibly a completely self-taught musician, reinvented the French operatic style.
• Mozart, an Austrian, exemplified the French style in works like the concerto for Flute and Harp.
• Living in Paris furthered Mozart’s development as a composer. Parisian audiences so loved the flair of his Paris Symphony that they demanded encores.
This concert is part of Series 1.
