Forget your inbox, deadlines and work-a-day blues! We open this playful concert with the Toy Symphony — written by either Mozart’s dad or Franz Haydn — nobody knows! and it doesn’t really matter for this joy-filled work that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Next up, Maurice Ravel envisions Mother Goose’s fairy tales of beasts and beauties followed by the evening’s crowning work: the U.S. premiere of Sergiu Celibidache’s The Pocket Garden. This magical suite imagines a hidden, verdant world of childlike wonder and invites you to play in the dirt with abandon. DPO Principal Guest Conductor Mark Mast of the Bavarian Philharmonic leads this lighthearted trio of works on April 9.
