Mozart and Beethoven

A feast for fans of the Classical Era, this program maps the style’s course from the late Eighteenth Century to the early Twentieth. Idomeneo represents a watershed moment in Mozart’s opera canon, a genre that would become one of the most defining in his brilliant career. Beethoven’s Eighth may be the most stylistically Classical of his nine symphonies, reminding us that one can listen to the past while saying something of the present. In his Classical Symphony, Prokofiev imagines the sounds Haydn may have created had he been alive in 1917.

Music of the Knights honors their lasting musical influence with songs like “Memory,” “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Circle of Life,” “Don’t Let the Sun go Down on Me,” “Hey Jude” and many more!
