  • The 25th Anniversary Mainly Mozart Festival please join me to celebrate 25 years of wonderful

    performances with some of the best musicians

    in the country. It will be my last with the Festival,

    and therefore an appropriate time to include

    pieces featuring many of the works and artists

    from our premiere season. William preucil and

    Cynthia phelps return to recreate their immensely

    satisfying interpretation of one of Mozarts greatest

    masterpieces, the Sinfonia Concertante; Anton Nel, always a favourite with San Diego

    audiences, plays the same concerto as in our inaugural series; and the Festival ends

    with Mozarts first and final symphonies used once again as musical bookends

    to bring our 25th Anniversary Festival to a brilliant and satisfying conclusion.

    It has been my immense pleasure and honour to bring high

    quality performances to San Diego over such a long period of time

    and, from the very beginning, to work alongside my wonderful

    friend and colleague, Nancy Laturno Bojanic. Long may she and

    Mainly Mozart continue to flourish.

    The interpretive cover illustration of W. Amadeus Mozart was commissioned by Mainly Mozart to reflect the innovative nature of the 2013 Festival. The artist, Hua Tunan, is a rising artist from Foshan, China whose style has been described as making paint look like it serendipitously exploded all over the canvas.
