Our Marvellous Mozart weekend celebrates the music and life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with a programme of chamber music delights.
We open the festival with an evening concert featuring Mozart at his most irresistible – sophistication, playfulness, insight, wit, disarming charm, and that extra sparkle of magic that marks his music out from everyone else’s.
Ensemble 360 perform:
Piano Trio in B flat, K.502
Violin Sonata in A, K.526
String Quartet in D, K.155
String Quartet in C, K465 ‘Dissonance’
The Violin Sonata in A was written in 1787, the same year that the composer wrote the famous ‘Eine Kleine Nachtmusik’, and it is known that Mozart accompanied the violinist Heinrich Anton Hoffman in a private performance of the piece in Mainz in 1790. The work is a true partnership of equals, with the violin and piano sharing wonderfully inventive materials. The finale is playful and uplifting, with endlessly cascading groups of quavers.
