Tickets from $35 | Seat Layout

The 2019 Festival closes with a program featuring not one, but two great pianists. Former SMF Music Director Robert Levin and current SMF Music Director Jeffrey Kahane join forces for the Concerto for Two Pianos by Mozart. Originally written to be performed by Mozart and his older sister, the work will be in good hands with Mozart scholar Levin and international soloist Kahane at the keyboards. The Festival Orchestra continues with the “unfinished” Symphony No. 8 in B Minor by Schubert and its iconic, instantly-recognizable first movement theme. Finally, the Festival closes with the exuberant Overture to Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss, Jr. Featuring many of the “greatest hits” from Strauss’ operetta about the joys and perils of too much champagne, the lighthearted Overture brings the 2019 Festival to a “toast-worthy” conclusion.
