Single tickets for the Mozart Brahms Festival performances
go on sale at 10 a.m. on Monday, July 21

Limited number of tickets left to see legends such as Perlman and Mehta

Ottawa, Ontario ĺ─ý Single tickets for the National Arts Centre Orchestraĺ─˘s 2008-09 season-opening Mozart Brahms Festival performances will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Monday, July 21, through Ticketmaster and the NAC Box Office.

The Mozart Brahms Festival, featuring legendary classical music giants such as violinist Itzhak Perlman and conductor Zubin Mehta, takes place from September 23 to October 2. The Mozart Brahms Festival is a face-off of two classical titans, each illuminating the other through orchestral, vocal, chamber and family concerts, and pre-concert talks.

Monday will be the first opportunity for the public to purchase tickets for the various Mozart Brahms Festival performances, which had been exclusively available for sale to NAC Orchestra subscribers since March.

Music lovers are encouraged to get their tickets fast as there is a limited number of spaces left for many of the performances, including the September 23 and 24 concerts with Perlman and Pinchas Zukerman, who will get together for Mozartĺ─˘s Duo for violin and viola and Sinfonia Concertante.

Tickets are also limited for Mozartĺ─˘s Requiem on September 27 and the Brahms Violin Concerto with Mehta and Zukerman on October 1. Other Festival highlights include the October 2 performance by Janina Fialkowska of Mozartĺ─˘s Piano Concerto No. 24 under the direction of Zukerman. Also, the world-renowned Tokyo Quartet and the hot young Escher String Quartet will each perform two concerts combining works of Mozart and Brahms (October 1 and 2). On September 27 there will be two events for families with children ĺ─ý the Shoestring Opera Magic Flute and a backstage exploration of the Flentrop organs.
