The pandemic arrived silently, forcing us to leave the world and retire to our homes. For many people, daily life had to adapt to the circumstances, and homes were animated by work activities, play, and music. Yes, because as a basic necessity, music has touched the souls of many through this invisible network that unites us.
Program notes by Dominic Teresi, bassoon
The premiere of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s opera Die Entführung aus dem Serail was advertised in Vienna on July 16, 1782. Just four days later the young composer wrote to his father in Salzburg: "Now I have no small task: by Sunday week I have to arrange my opera for wind band, otherwise someone will step in front of me and take the profit.”
In our upcoming 2018/19 season opening concert, Mozart 40, Dominic Teresi will be featured as soloist, performing Mozart's Concerto for bassoon in B-flat Major.
