For the few folks who didn't think there were already enough musical fireworks in the music of Mozart and Haydn: the Hartford Symphony Orchestra — led by guest conductor Steven Lipsitt — provide actual, physical fireworks, the exploding kind, over the scene at the Talcott Mountain Music Festival this Friday. The show marks the opening of the outdoor concert season, with Mozart's "Paris" Symphony and Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and Haydn's Cello Concerto No. 1 (with soloist Jeffrey Krieger). Stay tuned all summer for more exciting outdoor classical music shows like this one.
