Few other composers have captured our imaginations like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, whose tragically short life yielded masterpieces that astonish the mind and awaken the soul. Hear his unfinished Requiem, perhaps finally as he intended, as completed by modern Mozart expert Robert Levin. The evening also features two of our own Eugene Symphony musicians in Antonio Vivaldi’s sparkling Concerto for Two Cellos, and young American composer Jessie Montgomery’s poignant remembrance of a friend and commemoration of the music that infused her youth in Manhattan.
