Moonlit Mozart in Rocky River

West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church 20401 Hilliard Blvd, Rocky River, United States

The music of Mozart can be revelatory – particularly when combined with period instruments’ signature transparency and rhythmic verve. Artistic Director Debra Nagy has assembled North America’s finest period-instrument woodwind players for this all-Mozart program including selections from The Magic Flute and Don Giovanni plus Mozart’s transcendent Serenade in C minor “Nachtmusik” (K388) for pairs of oboes, clarinets, bassoons, and natural horns.

Acclaimed tenor Nicholas Phan joins Les Délices for A Moment’s Oblivion, pairing Baroque cantatas and instrumental works that take listeners on a journey seeking truth or resolution with a new commission from Vietnamese-American composer Viet Cuong. Based on a Confucian myth, Cuong’s A Moment’s Oblivion explores the effects of a mysterious illness, experimental treatments, and miraculous recovery on a patient and their community. Projected supertitles at both performances.
