In recognition of their generous support of Newport Classical, this concert is dedicated to Marilyn and Don Malpass in memory of Joan and Mark Malkovich III.
While Mozart may have been one of the most influential and prolific composers of the Classical Period, other incredible works were being composed and performed by his contemporaries and received little attention. In this inspiring morning concert, Newport Classical's five festival artists perform works from the later years of the Classical Era, featuring works by Mozart, Bologne, Auernhammer, and Danzi. Listen for shared influences and varying perspectives as the late period beacons the arrival of the Romanic Period.
