During this season, Friends of Mozart presents chamber music featuring keyboard trios by Beethoven and E.T.A. Hoffmann performed on period instruments. We pay tribute to the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth with a program of works for string quintet by Beethoven, alongside one of Mozart’s masterworks in the genre. Leading musicians, who appear in New York, throughout the United States and abroad, are joined by young artists, as part of Friends of Mozart’s Introduction Series, which this November includes singers from the Juilliard School. With Mozart at its heart, concerts give a widened scope of the eighteenth-century music and works from the early nineteenth century
Friends of Mozart, is a non-profit organization based in New York City, supported by private membership, which presents established artists and young musicians in an annual series of concerts that are open to the public. In addition to performances of Mozart’s music and repertoire from the eighteenth and early nineteenth-century, Friends of Mozart publishes newsletters on the composer, his era and creative world, enduring influence, and serves as a nexus for the Mozart and music enthusiast.
Please make a tax-deductible to Friends of Mozart to support our four free-admission concerts. We appreciate your generosity and support!
"Mozart's great quintet for piano and winds is not often programmed because of the combination of instruments.
To hear such a tremendously accomplished, vigorously expressive performance in a genuine chamber setting was a delight and a revelation."
- Peter Webster, Friend of Mozart
