Louis Langrée and the Mostly Mozart Festival
The Lincoln Centre in New York have extended Louis Langrée's contract as Renée and Robert Belfer Music Director of the Mostly Mozart Festival until 2017. Louis made his debut at the Festival in 1998, becoming Music Diretor in 2002. (Full press release here.)
This year's festival opened last night, with a Mozart programme including Piano Concerto No 23 K488 with Richard Goode.
"Langrée is a musician who has attained a delicate balance of efficiency and sensitivity... the Festival Orchestra demonstrated equal parts bravado and suavity." (Financial Times, 5 stars)
