You can never accuse ProMusica Chamber Orchestra of resting on their laurels.  The 2015-2016 season opens with a bang.

Mozart's Linz Symphony, something he dashed off in just a few days, is featured, along with a Michael Haydn symphony which has an introduction written by his friend Wolfgang.

There is also music by another Wolfgang...Wolfgang Zamastil, whose archive IV | passacaglia receives it's World Premiere this coming Sunday.  Zamastil also puts his unique stamp on Concierto Para Quinteto by Astor Piazzolla.

David Danzmayr came by the Classical 101 studios to talk about opening night and ProMusica's exciting upcoming season.
