Mozart and Debussy

About this Concert:

Mozart is the ultimate “classical” composer whose every bar of music is perfectly proportioned, balanced and beautiful, while Debussy’s revolution a century later was to build a whole new world of sound.

  • Minnesota Orchestra
  • Juanjo Mena, conductor
  • Ingrid Fliter, piano

FALLA
Interlude and Dance from La Vida Breve

More Details:

  • This is Spanish conductor Juanjo Mena’s Minnesota Orchestra debut, but orchestras around the U.S. are immediately inviting him back after his guest-conducting visits.
  • The Argentinian Fliter was the first woman to win the prestigious Gilmore Artist Award (2006).
  • The Gilmore, which Fliter won in 2006, is an anonymous, secret-ballot award given every four years to one exceptional pianist; there’s no outright “competition” for it; your phone simply rings one day and you learn that a check for $300,000 is on the way.
  • Fliter’s specialty? Mozart, with a close second given to Chopin.

In Beyond the Surface, artist Mary Pettis draws upon the music and philosophy of Debussy to create a series of paintings to celebrate his Images For Orchestra. Pettis emphasizes the musicality of visual arts as a vehicle of deliberate expression. And like Debussy's compositions, this exhibition is designed to satisfy the viewer on both an intuitive and a technical level.
