The Montreal Symphony Orchestra was in the news a few years ago for not the loveliest of reasons: a very public falling out between a longtime conductor and the players. The American conductor Kent Nagano has essentially ridden a white horse into Montreal and done wonders to restore the luster of one of the world's great orchestras, which shows its stuff in this program with Mozart and Strauss.
