Artistic Director Gary Levinson offers the following explanation for this distinctive title: “This program explores the genius of Mozart from several different angles. The G minor quintet’s use of two violas gives the group a unique texture that brings a new light to the genre. Furthermore, both the trio and piano quartets have Mozart’s unmistakable sense of humor that was adopted by some of the greatest followers of his, such as Beethoven. Specifically, “wrong” keys that Mozart uses were likely the catalyst for Beethoven’s use of the “wrong” horn entrance in the recap of the Eroica Symphony.”
The three works of Mozart to be presented are: Trio for Piano, Violin and Cello, K. 502; Piano Quartet No. 2 in E-flat Major, K. 493; String Quintet No. 4 in G minor, K. 516.
