Tuesday, August 2 at 8 p.m. – Mostly Mozart Festival Opening Night

(Rochester, NY)Live from Lincoln Center presents Mostly Mozart Festival 2011, airing Tuesday, August 2 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11). The gala features the acclaimed violinist Christian Tetzlaff and the Festival debut of violist Antoine Tamestit under music director Louis Langrée.

Langrée leads the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra in Mozart’s Sinfonia concertante in E-flat major for violin and viola. American soprano Susanna Phillips, receiving acclaim at numerous opera houses for her vibrant, yet sensitive interpretations of Mozart, joins the orchestra for the composer’s Crudele?...Non mi dir, bell’idol mio, from Don Giovanni and Bella mia fiamma…Resta, o cara. Langrée brings the opening night program to a rousing close with Mozart’s “Linz” Symphony.

Live from Lincoln Center makes the world's greatest artists accessible to home viewers in virtually every corner of the United States. It remains the only series of regularly scheduled live broadcast performances on American television today. Fred Child, host of NPR's Performance Today, is the announcer.
