KC Symphony: Mozart’s Fifth Violin Concerto


Friday May 31, 2019 • 8 p.m. • Kauffman Center • TBA

8 p.m.


Brahms’ Piano Quartet in G minor is one of his most energetic and uninhibited pieces with a wild gypsy dance at the end. In Schoenberg’s technicolor arrangement of the chamber work for orchestra, the Quartet emerges as a thrilling showpiece. Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5, “Turkish,” is a technically demanding yet sweetly poetic romp. Within Her Arms, scored for an ensemble of 15 strings, is composer Anna Clyne’s touching memorial to her mother.

The performance will be at the Kauffman Center from May 31 through June 2. The first three performances will be at 8 p.m., and Sunday’s will be at 2 p.m. Tickets are currently not on sale.
