Mostly Mozart Festival
Each summer for more than half a century, Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival has celebrated the composer's inventive genius and inspiring legacy with a series of New York performances that explore his immortal music as well as those of his classical contemporaries and beyond. This year's series at David Geffen Hall and Alice Tully Hall once again offers an all-star lineup of guests -- like violin virtuoso Joshua Bell and pianist Emanuel Ax -- who'll be joining conductor Louis Langrée and the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra for performances of Mozart's "Jupiter" and "Prague" symphonies, along with a Requiem featuring stellar guest soloists. The fest also goes baroque with Handel and Bach, heads to Paris with Gershwin and Bernstein and welcomes 16-year-old violinist Daniel Lozakovich for a performance of Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3, written when the composer himself was just a teen.
