St. Louis: Ax, Robertson begin Mozart collaboration
September 23, 2017
The St. Louis Symphony opens its season Sept. 23-24 with the first of three programs featuring pianist Emanuel Ax in partnership with frequent collaborator David Robertson, music director of the SLSO. The veteran musician will be in residence for two weeks to play six Mozart concertos in three programs.
This first program includes Concertos No. 19 and No. 27, plus Mozart’s overture to The Marriage of Figaro and his Jupiter Symphony, No. 41. The second (on Sept. 29) pairs Concertos No. 14 and No. 20 with the 39th Symphony. And the final concerts (Sept. 30, Oct. 1) put Concertos No. 16 and 17 with the 40th Symphony.
Then, starting Feb. 1, 2018, Ax and Robertson will take the entire project to the Sydney Symphony.
