Mostly Mozart Music Festival at Lincoln Center in NYC

From July 25 until August 23, 2014, the Lincoln Center hosts the classical music festival Mostly Mozart sponsored by Bloomberg.

The festival will feature hour-long, late-night recitals by the Festival Orchestra under the leadership of Renée and Robert Belfer Music Director Louis Langrée. The program will include many of Mozart's popular pieces, a rare Festival performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9. as well as performances by the Emerson String Quartet, joined this year by the lyrical clarinetist Martin Fröst; the Mostly Mozart debut of the lively pianist Yuja Wang; and virtuosic presentations by Joshua Bell, Richard Goode, and Christian Tetzlaff.

Composers of today are also showcased in performances by the Mostly Mozart Festival artists-in-residence, the International Contemporary Ensemble; in the world premiere of John Luther Adams's Sila: The Breath of the World, commissioned jointly by Mostly Mozart and Lincoln Center Out of Doors; and in an intimate presentation of Adams's Mathematics of Resonant Bodies by the masterful percussionist Steven Schick.
