Savannah Music Festival LIVE 607 – Mozart 1787
The year 1787 was a bountiful one for Mozart. While his major project during that year was his opera, Don Giovanni, Mozart completed several more works. These included a rondo for piano, two string quintets, an orchestral work, his serenade for strings known as “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik,” a sonata for violin and keyboard, a sonata for piano duet, as well as various songs and concert arias. During this episode, we listen to two outstanding works from that year, recorded in two separate concerts at the 2013 Savannah Music Festival. Pianists Wu Han and Sebastian Knauer perform Mozart’s Sonata for Piano Duet in C Major, K. 521, and his String Quintet in C Major, K. 515 played by violinists Lorenza Borrani and Benny Kim, violists Carla Maria Rodrigues and Philip Dukes and cellist Camden Shaw.
