A rare chance to hear Mozart’s symphonic splendor with the sparkling clarity of period instruments. From the lighthearted overture and the stormy Symphony no. 40, to the exhilarating Ballet Music – 35 virtuoso musicians bring AF’s signature energy and passion to these classical masterpieces.
“Enormous drama, delicacy, and zest… brimming with nervous energy. Sorrell takes full advantage of her superb instrumentalists.”
