We are excited to welcome back to Musical Masterworks three of the most elegant musicians we know, to perform music of, and inspired by, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Musical Masterworks favorites Jeewon Park, Tessa Lark and Dimitri Murrath will join Artistic Director, Edward Arron for BOTH of Mozart's glorious and transporting piano quartets. Before each quartet we will perform a late twentieth century work by a Soviet era composer: first Arvo Pärt's haunting Mozart-Adagio, arranged from the slow movement of Mozart's Piano Sonata, K.280; and then Alfred Schnittke's humorous salute to Mozart in Moz-Art à la Haydn for Violin and Viola. Join us as we put Mozart's two masterpieces into a fascinating context, and usher in springtime with this vibrant and uplifting music. ... See MoreSee Less
