CAPE ANN SYMPHONY
Premieres
Newly Discovered Mendelssohn
On
SUNDAY, MARCH 28

Pianists Kiyoshi Tamagawa and Jun Tuguchi join the Cape Ann Symphony for the Undiscovered Mendelssohn Concert on Sunday, March 28 at 2 pm. Tamagawa and Toguchi will perform together in Mendelssohn’s Fantasy and Variations for Two Pianos and Orchestra, only the second known performance of the work since its discovery in 2003. This enchanting recently discovered work was originally written in 1833 as collaboration between Felix Mendelssohn and his friend piano virtuoso Ignaz Moscheles. There are two endings to the piece, one written by Mendelssohn and one written by Moscheles. The Symphony will be performing both without telling the audience who wrote which one. Conductor Udagawa will poll the audience to find which ending people preferred before he identifies the composer of each ending. The concert program also features Mozart’s Don Giovanni Overture and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7. The Cape Ann Symphony concerts are held at the Fuller Auditorium located at Blackburn Circle, Route 128, Gloucester, MA. The Cape Ann Symphony Cafe and Concessions will be open a half hour prior to the start of the concert and during intermission. Fuller Auditorium is handicapped accessible. Ticket prices are $30 for adults, $25 for senior citizens, $20 for college students and Free for children under 18 years old.
