About the performance

Not interested in playing first or second fiddle, MSO Principal Violist Chris Moore leads the band in this concert, which features music of real emotional depth.

Arvo Pärt’s Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten is an iconic work. Composed in honour of the great British composer, this hauntingly beautiful music unfolds like the slow pealing of bells, in a series of minor scales scored for strings and a single chime.

Any darkness cast is lightly brushed away by the final piece on this program: the breezy Symphony No.29 of Mozart, one of the composer’s best-known early symphonic works.
