Alexander Mozart gets the focus on tonight's Live from the Lincoln Center performance on PBS.

Live from the Lincoln Center: 50 Years of Mostly Mozart airs Friday night on PBS, paying tribute to the organization and its love of Mozart's music. The event features a look at the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra conducted by Louis Langrée, performing Mozart's first and last symphonies-Symphonies No. 1 and No. 41 ("Jupiter").

The special also includes In between, pianist Richard Goode joins the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra for Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 12 in A major.

"Since 1966, the Mostly Mozart Festival has been a fixture of Lincoln Center and New York City's summer season," said Andrew C. Wilk, Executive Producer of Live From Lincoln Center. "We took the occasion of its 50th anniversary to look at its history, revisit previous footage of Beverly Sills and Itzhak Perlman at the festival, and follow the festival's growth to include contemporary music and commission world premieres- priorities that Mozart himself held in his time."

Live from the Lincoln Center: 50 Years of Mostly Mozart is a two-hour special that begins at 9 p.m. ET/PT on PBS. The special is expected to begin streaming on PBS.org following the broadcast, if you cannot watch it live.
