This concert showcases composers from four musical eras who stretched the boundaries of classical tradition. We begin with excerpts from operas by Rameau, a master of Baroque music. The sheer beauty of Debussy's La mer made it a seminal work of the Romantic era that changed the course of music history. Webern's short, economical symphony is a watershed 20th century piece. Then there is Mozart; the culmination of all that came before and the foundation for the future of music.
