Michael Christie has returned to our fair city to conduct your Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in a program of Vivaldi's Four Seasons and Mozart's final symphony, the Jupiter. As he began to plan the line-up, Mr. Christie had an idea: what if we presented the Vivaldi in the style of concerts of that era? So this week, the RPO, Michael Christie, and Concertmaster/soloist Juliana Athayde will be giving you Vivaldi plus. How will that play out?
Michael and Juliana explain it all to WXXI Music director Julia Figueras, and then go on to laud that brilliant musical nova, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
