Fun Facts:

  • This performance is a homecoming of sorts for Dutch conductor Edo de Waart. He was music director of the Minnesota Orchestra from 1986 to 1995.
  • 30-year old composer Mason Bates was inspired by the garages of Silicon Valley that served as incubators for some of the most successful tech businesses of the Digital Age.
  • According to Revue, “The Naughton twins bring esoteric unity to their art form in a way only identical twins can.”
  • The San Francisco Examiner celebrates the Naughtons for their “stellar musicianship, technical mastery, and awe-inspiring artistry.”
  • Born in Princeton, NJ, Christina and Michelle are graduates of The Juilliard School and the Curtis Institute of Music. They are Steinway Artists who currently reside in New York City.
  • Mozart’s concerto was originally scored for the two pianos together with two oboes, two bassoons; two horns; and strings; he later expanded the score with pairs of clarinets, trumpets and timpani in E flat and B flat.

*This work is part of Minnesota Orchestra's season-long exploration and celebration of American music. Learn more about our American Expressions festival in January 2019.
