Mozart will find himself at home in the Lowcountry for the premiere of our 2019-2020 season, as we pair his enigmatic Symphony No. 39 with Charleston composer Edward Hart’s Under an Indigo Sky. The Charleston Symphony premiered Under an Indigo Sky to a sold-out crowd at the Gaillard Center in 2012, and to date it remains one of the most popular pieces the CSO has ever played. Yuriy Bekker will reprise his role as violinist for this wonderful concerto, written by Hart as “a love letter to the state of South Carolina.”
Mozart’s Symphony No. 39 is among the last he ever wrote, and remains one of his most mysterious works. What was the inspiration for this piece? For whom did he write it? Did he live to hear it performed? While we may never know the specifics surrounding this symphony, we will at least have the pleasure of hearing Mozart’s delightful masterwork for ourselves this Fall.
