In his later years Mozart was so moved by the continued reverence of Prague audiences that the Viennese composer expressed his gratitude through music. La Clemenza di Tito celebrates the coronation of Emperor Leopold in rich, majestic melodies. Known as Mozart’s “Prague” Symphony, Symphony No. 38 transcends the scope of what a symphony had typically been, epitomizing Mozartian freshness, energy and grace. The master’s unsurpassed skill at creating a dialogue between solo instrument and orchestra is displayed in the extraordinary Clarinet Concerto featuring internationally-acclaimed clarinetist David Shifrin.  Maestro Pak’s very own version of Happy Birthday adds sparkle to the festival.  Tickets vary depending on seating, and range from $26.00 to $64.00.  David Shifrin, Clarinet: One of only two wind players to have been awarded the Avery Fisher Prize since the award’s inception in 1974, Shifrin is in constant demand throughout the world as an orchestral soloist, recitalist and chamber music collaborator. He is a three-time Grammy nominee and  has served as a faculty member of the The Juilliard School of Music and as music director of the Chamber Music Society of Yale.
