Street closures around NAC during the Ottawa International Jazz Festival

Mozart and Mahler

[x] Close

Jan Lisiecki

Mathias Bothor

  • Mozart Piano Concerto No. 9, “Jeunehomme”
  • Mahler Symphony No. 5

At 18 years of age, Jan Lisiecki is in the spotlight for Mozart’s Ninth Piano Concerto, called “one of the greatest wonders of the world”. Then, in a NAC Orchestra premiere, Maestro Zukerman conducts Mahler’s Fifth Symphony, unsurpassed for sheer drama, lyricism, and exquisite melodies. You’ll recognize the beautiful fourth movement Adagietto, radiantly scored for strings and harp—a resting place between the Scherzo and the manic Rondo-Finale.

This concert is made possible in part through the Friends of the NAC Orchestra Kilpatrick Fund.
