Mostly Mozart with National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra this Weekend

This weekend finds Cho-Liang Lin back with the National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra for two concerts in Taichung. November 1’s afternoon of chamber music pairs Lin, who is also Artistic Director of the NTSO’s Youth Music Summer Camp, with pianist Pei-Yao Wang and members of the orchestra for an all-Mozart program. Pieces to be performed include the Flute Quartet No. 1 in D Major, the String Quintet in C Major, and the Piano Quartet in G Minor.

The following afternoon, Lin appears as both violinist and conductor with the NTSO. The performance begins with Mozart's Rondo in B-Flat Major, Adagio in E Major, and Rondo in C Major before turning to Haydn's Sinfonia Concertante in B-Flat Major. Mozart rounds out the program in the form of the composer's "Haffner" Serenade in D Major. In addition to Lin, several principals of the NTSO alternate as soloists for this concert.
