The Boise Philharmonic will explore the chamber repertoire with guest conductor Joost Smeets, who is from the Netherlands. On the program is Mozart's rich and rewarding Symphony No. 40, one of the most loved and recognizable pieces by this prolific composer. You'll also hear his Double Concerto for Flute and Harp, featuring soloists Jeffrey Barker and Matthew Tutsky. That will be balanced out with a gem of a chamber piece: Dutch composer Hendrik Andriessen's Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Johan Kuhnau. Delicate, melodic and beautiful, it is a good match for the Mozart.
