CLASSICAL

For the first time, the Minnesota Orchestra is presenting Mozart’s final three symphonies on a single program. Nos. 39, 40 and 41 (“Jupiter”) are pinnacles of classical symphonic writing, and of Mozart’s output. They are also shrouded in mystery. All were composed in a blaze of inspiration during the summer of 1788, three years before his death, but they never were performed during his lifetime, leaving unanswered the question of why and for whom they were composed. Brit Christopher Warren-Green, music director of the London Chamber Orchestra, conducts. (8 p.m. Fri.-Sat., Orchestra Hall, $22-$84.) William Randall Beard
