About the Event
Experience the enchanting melodies of classical music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johannes Brahms in a highly‐anticipated concert at Milan's cherished Auditorium Fondazione Cariplo. Mozart and Brahms come together in a joyful dialogue during their final creative phase. Both works epitomize introspection, with Mozart's Concerto K. 595 showcasing a chamber‐like intimacy that speaks directly to the listener. Its lyrical nature surpasses any overt drama or pathos, offering a sublime and resigned form of expression.
Brahms' Symphony No. 4 not only marks the conclusion of his symphonic production, but also establishes a significant turning point in classical‐romantic symphonism. This dense masterpiece is a testament to the composer's rigorous compositional work, filled with conflicting emotions, expressive nuances, and a profound and restless melancholy. The Fourth Symphony was composed during Brahms' summer sojourns in a quaint village in Styria, spanning the years 1884 and 1885.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Perhaps the most important composer of all time, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was an Austrian composer of the late 18th century. Born in 1756 in Salzburg, he showed prodigious musical talent from childhood. Beginning at five years of age, he composed more than 600 works, including concertos, symphonies, religious works and operas before his premature death at the age of 35. Hi influence over successive generations cannot be overestated - Ludwig van Beethoven wrote of Mozart "posterity will not see such a talent again in 100 years”. Despite the immense success of his compositions, and the acclaim he received across Europe, Mozart achieved little financial security and rwas buried in an unmarked grave in Vienna's St Marx Cemetery.
