NightCap: Mozart, Bartók and Nielsen

About this Concert:

A spring breeze moves through these three intimate pieces, each composer in a sunny mood that feels just right on a midwinter evening.

MOZART
Adagio for English Horn and Three Strings

BARTÓK
Duos for Two Violins

NIELSEN
Wind Quintet

More Details:

  • $25 tickets, plus one complimentary beverage ($10 for patrons attending the 6pm performance).
  • Mozart’s Adagio was left incomplete at his death—only a melody line for English horn and unspecified accompanying instruments. Amazingly, even as a fragment, this is one of his most beautiful creations, with an echo of his popular choral masterpiece Ave Verum Corpus.
  • Nielsen’s Wind Quintet is one of the prickly Dane’s sunniest pieces, and you can practically feel a warm breeze in every bar.
  • Béla Bartók created these 44 short, virtuosic and peppery duos based on folk tunes from his homeland—so wherever two violinists meet, they’ve got fun repertoire to play.
