Mozart & Mendelssohn
Mendelssohn’s joyful souvenir of a tour through Italy, and a playful operatic overture by a native Italian, Rossini, highlight this sunny program. Italian pianist Luca Buratto, the 2015 Honens Prize Laureate, brings all his “fiery imagination and finesse” (to quote Musical America) to a masterful Mozart concerto.
