About the show

Austin Symphony Orchestra presents Compassion: Music of Mozart & Westlake-Attar, November 22 & 23 in Dell Hall.

November brings two amazing composers under the Long Center roof, one from the Classical Period and one from the Contemporary Period. We begin the evening with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Overture to La clemenza di Tito, a piece written in just 18 days for the coronation of Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor, as King of Bohemia. After the overture, the ASO will perform Mozart’s Symphony Linz, which he wrote in 1783 during a stopover in the Austrian town of Linz on his way back home to Vienna from Salzburg with his wife. He wrote it in just four days!

After intermission, the evening concludes with the return of Australian vocal sensation, Lior, performing the breathtaking piece “Compassion.” Lior debuted the piece with the ASO back in 2016 with an overwhelming response, leaving guests mesmerized and exclaiming it was one of the best concerts they heard that season!

Still want more? How about playing on some string instruments provided by our friends at Violins Etc.? We also have a wonderful pre-concert talk given by Bob Buckalew at 7:10 pm. How about “tweeting” with our musicians and ASO staff? Take a photo in front of our photo wall. Come experience music that is “Larger Than Life!”
