Mozart and Haydn!

Unity Temple on the Plaza
“April on the Plaza, Gorgeous melodies, A perfect spring evening!”
The gorgeous melodies of Mozart and the elegance, drama, and wit of Haydn make for an unparalleled concert experience when performed by The Kansas City Chamber Orchestra. Mozart’s “Sinfonia Concertante” for solo violin and viola is one of his most sublimely beautiful works, a perennial favorite. Join us for a perfect spring evening!
Literally thousands of symphonies and other works were composed during the classical period of the 18th century, yet only a fraction of those works are performed today, and almost all are by the two composers represented on this concert. There is a simple reason: Mozart and Haydn were giants, beside whom works by others pale in comparison as dull, repetitive, and lacking in the creative verve that marks these masters.
