Opening program of the 39th season will be performed on September 17

It was with the encouragement of J.C. Bach that Mozart wrote his first symphonies. The concert opener is the “Sinfonia” in g minor by the same “London Bach.” Beethoven’s two “Violin Romances” were rejected as “inferior” by a very famous Vienna publisher. The two masterpieces are now repertoire gems. Schubert’s Symphony No. 5 remained unpublished for 57 years. Fortunately, it is now an extensively performed masterpiece. One can hear all this and more at the Mozart Classical Orchestra concert on Sunday, Sept. 17.
