A Tribute to Mozart

At every single symphony orchestra performance, composers, conductors, instrumentalists, and audience members make wonderful musical discoveries. Even though I am not steeped in musical talent, last Friday, I attended a beautiful musical tribute to Mozart performed by the Denver Symphony. During the performance, I was able to enhance my musical experience by paying close attention to the variety of instruments which, comprise the modern symphony.

Like actors on stage, each instrument plays a critical part, which the conductor is trying to replicate. The intimacy created by the music tells its own story as the audience attempts to enter the mind and heart of the composer.
