Description

Did you know that the viola was Mozart's instrument of choice? Using live demonstration and recordings, MfS director Lila Brown will act as guide for the five glorious masterworks Mozart wrote for string quintet with two violas, from the tragic Quintet in G minor, to the golden concertante-style C major and the virtuosic, brilliant Quintet in E flat. Please join us for a musical discussion of these radiant works and a look at what harmony is all about in the classical era, in its elegance of form and perfect balance. No musical background necessary – just bring ears and a love of music!
