The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra has been making music without a conductor since 1972, just the way many of the great masters first heard their works performed and with a precision and playfulness that is the envy of many conductor-led ensembles. Touring with a special all-Mozart program to celebrate his 250th birthday anniversary, the group will be joined by pianist extraordinaire Emmanuel Ax, who will perform Piano Concerto No. 17 (K. 503) and the ever-wondrous and popular No. 25 (K. 503) in an ambitious program that also includes the “Haffner” Symphony No. 35 (K. 385) and the Overture to “Cosi fan tutte.” (Dennis Polkow)
