Great Classical Composers:
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Franz Joseph Haydn
In this class we continue with the highly acclaimed PBS series, Great Performances: Now Hear This. Join us for the fascinating visual and musical narratives of two of the greatest composers of the late 18th century. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) and Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) lived and worked during essentially the same time period. These documentaries highlight an exciting and unusual format hosted by Scott Yoo, the chief conductor and artistic director of the Mexico City Philharmonic. Mr. Yoo’s visits across various European cities show us first hand the life experiences that inspired Mozart’s and Haydn’s masterpieces. The presentations include an abundance of remarkable live music and delightful insights into some of the greatest works of these virtuosos.
