Mark Morris Dance Group Mozart Dances
January 29 - January 31, 2010
Creating dance to the music of Mozart is a famously rare and supposedly difficult thing. Mark Morris, ever courageous, has tackled that axiom head on, and on a truly monumental scale with Mozart Dances. With Mozart Dances, Morris has created a unique world, at once courtly and folk-ish, pulsing with evidence of a great dance architect at every turn. The music for Mozart Dances ”Mozart's Piano Concerto, No. 11; Sonata in D Major for 2 Pianos; and Piano Concerto, No. 27-will be performed by the orchestra of Emmanuel Music with conductor Jane Glover and pianists Russell Sherman and Minsoo Sohn.
