La Follia performs the greatest masterworks of Mozart and Haydn, using instruments and performance practices like those used during the composers' lifetimes.

The concert features a trio of Austin "firsts":

  • Haydn's Trumpet Concerto performed on keyed trumpet, precursor to the modern valved trumpet, and the instrument for which Haydn wrote his famous concerto.
  • Mozart's Jupiter Symphony, performed on classical period instruments and at Mozart's pitch.
  • A violin concerto by the "Black Mozart," Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges, the first classical composer of African descent, a contemporary of Mozart, and a brilliant Renaissance man.

Featured are Go Yamamoto, concertmaster and violin soloist, and Brian Shaw, keyed trumpet. They will be accompanied by La Follia's 25 piece chamber orchestra.
