Music of the Baroque’s very first season featured music of Mozart—and under the leadership of noted Mozart scholar Jane Glover, concerts in honor of his birthday have become a tradition. This year, Glover joins forces with “La Divina del Piano,” Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero, for the composer’s Piano Concerto No. 21. The world premiere of Stacy Garrop's Spectacle of Light—the ensemble's first ever commission—plus Mozart’s haunting Symphony No. 40 in G Minor and Overture to Lucio Silla, written when he was just 15 years old, complete the celebration.
