Join Us for an Ebullient Season Finale Livestream with New Friends and Frequent Collaborators
Two delightful works of MOZART begin our program. The first was written for an enterprising physician and amateur flutist. The second piece was written for Wolfgang’s beloved sister and fellow musical prodigy.
Then we’re joined by the extraordinary Black Oak Ensemble and Rembrandt Young Artist Mira Williams for BRAHMS’ deeply romantic first sextet, a lush journey that exemplifies his profound love for his most cherished friends.
Our program includes:
MOZART: Quartet in C Major, K.Anh. 171/285b for flute and strings
MOZART: Divertimento in D Major, K.251 for oboe, 2 horns, and string quartet
BRAHMS: String Sextet No. 1 in Bb Major, op. 18
Guest Artists: Gail Williams, horn; Jonathan Boen, horn; Desirée Ruhstrat, violin; Aurélien Fort Pederzoli, viola; Mira Williams, viola; David Cunliffe, cello; Ian Hallas, bass
