Program

Mozart: Symphony No. 31, “Paris”

Leó Weiner: Serenade for Small Orchestra
Joyful and mischievous, with both quiet moments and dramatic flair

Schumann: Overture, Scherzo and Finale
Short and light; Schumann called it a “symphonette”

Tranquil countryside erupts into exuberant dance; once banned in Hungary
