NBSO Opens 2019-2020 Season with Mozart & Mahler Times Two
The New Bedford Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Yaniv Dinur open the NBSO’s 104th season on October 5 & 6, presenting two performances of “Mozart & Mahler” at the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center. The concert program features Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 and Mahler’s Symphony No. 4.
In the first half, Dinur, a talented pianist, plays and conducts from the keyboard one of Mozart’s only two piano concertos written in the minor key. Dinur shared that it will be “a dream come true” to perform the D Minor Concerto with his esteemed colleagues. And in what has become a tradition on opening night, the NBSO performs a Mahler symphony – this time the lyrical and delicate Fourth, featuring Liv Redpath, one of the most promising young soprano leggero on the opera and concert stage today.
Saturday evening’s performance is at 7:30pm at The Z and Sunday’s matinee is at 2:30pm. Tickets are $30‒$65, with $10 student tickets (not available online). Purchase tickets through the Z box office, 508-994-2900, or online at www.nbsymphony.org. Convenient concert parking is available in the Z garage. Opening night concert sponsors are Robert B.Feingold & Associates, P.C., and Whaling City Sound. Reception sponsor is Russell Morin Catering.
