Version 3

 

Brossé brings one of Mozart’s most emotionally dynamic and sophisticated works to the stage in Symphony No. 38 Prague. Mozart’s compassion for fostering musicians can be seen in Johann Hummel. After living and learning under Mozart for two years free of charge, Hummel made his debut at the age of nine. Just like Mozart, Astral Artists has created an incubator of the brightest stars, providing skills and resources to the classical stars of tomorrow. Born Lau, Astral Spotlight Artist, makes his company debut playing “Fantasie for Viola and Orchestra.” Highlighting the immense range and skill of the Chamber Orchestra, electric violist and composer, Martha Mooke makes her COP debut with her self-made five string viola. Acclaimed for her electrifying performances and compositions, pioneering composer/electro-acoustic violist, Martha Mooke transcends musical boundaries, enhancing her classical training and expertise with extended techniques, digital effects processing and improvisation.
