The Lookout: Symphony by the Sea wraps up season with ‘Feast’

The relationship between composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri is explored in Symphony by the Sea’s last concert of the season.

“Feast: On the Music of Mozart and More” will be presented Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Firehouse Center for the Arts in Newburyport.

Music director Donald Palma wanted to play with the bitter rivalry between Mozart and Salieri, which was highlighted in the movie “Amadeus.” So the concert begins with Salieri’s Symphony in D Major, “La Veneziana,” and ends with Mozart’s Symphony No. 29 in A major.

In between, Belgian guitarist Jerome Mouffe will perform Joaquin Rodrigo’s “Concierto de Aranjuez.”

Tickets are $35 for adults and $5 for students. To purchase, call 978-462-7336 or visit www.firehouse.org. For more information, visit www.symphonybythesea.org.

The concert will also be presented tonight at Abbot Hall in Marblehead.
