Event Description

A big, beautiful program featuring large chamber ensembles playing works by two giants of the classical music world—Beethoven and Mozart. Beethoven’s pastoral Horn Sextet is bold, bright, and challenging; the piece’s famed hunting calls and fanfares are notoriously difficult for brass players. Imbued with autumnal mood and heartfelt nostalgia, Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet is a rare glimpse of the master at his most personal.
