As Jay tells us at the beginning, he has been reviewing from two summer festivals: the Mostly Mozart Festival (New York) and the Salzburg Festival, in Mozart’s hometown. He discusses and plays a variety of music performed at these festivals: Haydn, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Enescu – and Mozart, for sure.

Mozart, Overture to “The Magic Flute”

Mendelssohn, “Variations sérieuses”

Beethoven, Violin Concerto

Enescu, Octet

Mozart, Piano Concerto No. 27 in B flat, K. 595

Handel, “Tornami a vagheggiar,” from “Alcina”

Handel, “Verdi prati,” from “Alcina”

Haydn, Symphony No. 88

    Delightful as usual. I do love baritones and, of course, Mr. Terfel is one of my favorites. Again, wonderful.

    Ah, a solid Classical Music podcast. Thanks, Jay. So few any more know that the heavenly experience can be directly experienced through so much of this music, especially Mozart.

    Great Art is not a matter of opinion, contrary to popular belief.
