Mistral Presents: “O Mozart, Immortal Mozart”
“O Mozart, immortal Mozart, how many, how infinitely many inspiring suggestions of a finer, better life have you left in our souls!” So wrote Schubert in his diary, and we open our 26th season with a program that celebrates one of the greatest musical geniuses of all time. On September 24 at West Parish Church in Andover, Mistral offers the sunny C major viola quintet, K.515, in an arrangement for flute and strings, followed by one of his most exquisite piano concertos, K. 414 in A Major, performed in a chamber version from the era by dynamic pianist Gloria Chien. As part of our ongoing efforts to highlight the work of diverse composers, the program will include the riveting Lyric String Quartet, by the “dean” of Black American composers, William Grant Still.
Gloria Chien, piano; Gabriela Diaz, violin & viola; Donald Palma, bass; Stephanie Fong, viola; Sasha Scolnik-Brower, cello; Sarita Kwok, violin; Julie Scolnik, flute
