    Mozart    Symphony No. 38 in D major, “Prague”

    Guest conductor and violinist Kolja Blacher continues the Festival with two Mozart symphonies that have cities as nicknames. Number 36 is called the “Linz” Symphony, as it was written in just four days during a visit to the Austrian city. Number 38 is called the “Prague,” as it received its premiere there during Mozart’s first visit to a city that came to adore him. Blacher performs the melodious violin concerto by Mendelssohn between the two symphonies.
