Boston Artists Ensemble: Mozart x 2
January 3 @ 8:00 pm
String quintets have been called “symphonies for the living room” — they are works of explosive power and profound refinement. We begin 2020 with two Mozart quintets, both late masterpieces — K. 516 and K. 614 — that will transport our audiences from darkness to light. The G minor is dark and melancholic, turbulent and wistful, before ending with a sunny allegro in a major key. The E-flat quintet, written at the same time as the Magic Flute (also based E flat), is Mozart’s last serious chamber work, and full of celebration and joy. Please note that Hamilton Hall is a Registered National Historic Landmark and is not handicap accessible to the performance hall on the second floor.
