The two selected pieces for this program are significant masterpieces of their era and ever since. The C major String Quintet, composed in the spring of 1787, is one of the pinnacles of Mozart's chamber music in terms of its forms, instrumentation, and harmonies whereas Schönberg's work, written in 1899 for six string instruments, clearly employs the best elements of 19th century program music influenced so greatly by two giants, Richard Wagner and Johannes Brahms.
We wish you a pleasant time tuning in to GYPO's chamber music concert on Sunday.
