Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart—child prodigy, musical master and pop icon of his time—nurtured his extraordinary talent through the influence and mentorship of his peers and predecessors, George Frideric Handel and Franz Joseph Haydn. Radiating an edge-of-your-seat urgency, Mozart’s dramatic Symphony No. 40 is one of the most famous ever written. Handel’s Baroque brilliance mesmerized Mozart, and it’s on full display in selections from his opera Ariodante. Haydn, whose Sinfonia concertante cheerfully spotlights the violin, cello, oboe and bassoon, proclaimed his dear friend Mozart a once-in-a-century talent. Leading this trifecta tribute is Bernard Labadie, one of the world’s leading authorities on Baroque and Classical repertoire.

Joining the NWS Fellows is pianist Anne-Marie McDermott, whose virtuosic playing is praised for its elegance. After its banishment for over half a century, Béla Bartók’s Piano Quintet is a rare gem that blends his signature Hungarian folk music with nods to Liszt, Brahms and Richard Strauss. While Zoltán Kodály employs literal references to Hungarian songs in his lyrical String Quartet, Leoš Janáček fragments Czech tunes in a spirited Concertino whose movements he likened to woodland animals.
