Mozart & Don Quixote

Mozart & Don QuixoteCarl St.Clair, conductor
Orli Shaham, piano
Timothy Landauer, cello

RAVEL: Alborada del gracioso
MOZART: Piano Concerto No. 17
STRAUSS: Don Quixote

The esteemed and internationally celebrated pianist Orli Shaham has been building loyal audiences here with her artful curation of the Symphony’s Café Ludwig chamber music series. Here, this “first-rate Mozartean” (Chicago Tribune) takes center-stage in Mozart’s sunny Concerto No. 17, with the famous third movement theme inspired by the composer’s melodic pet starling. Ravel’s “Morning Song of the Jester,” incorporating Spanish musical themes, opens the program. Closing the evening is Strauss’ tone poem inspired by the Cervantes novel, with the solo cello—Pacific Symphony’s own Timothy Landauer—starring as the “ingenious gentleman,” Don Quixote de la Mancha.

Presenter / Producer: Pacific Symphony
