James Sommerville, principal horn of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, combines his solo and conducting skills for this immensely enjoyable program featuring a pair of attractive concertos by the Mozarts—father Leopold and son Wolfgang Amadeus. Rounding out the bill are Haydn’s enchanting “Surprise” symphony, and operatic master Rossini’s most familiar work—the merry overture to his comic masterpiece, The Barber of Seville.
