ZHANG CONDUCTS MOZART & BRAHMS
Audience favorite Xian Zhang returns to the podium to lead the NJSO in a delectable program. Brahms’ heartfelt Double Concerto puts Concertmaster Eric Wyrick and Principal Cello Jonathan Spitz in the starring roles, while the NJSO winds shine in Strauss’ charming Serenade. Mozart’s 39th is one of his last and greatest symphonies; from its stately opening to its vibrant finale, it gives voice to the composer’s deepest thoughts and emotions.
