Arts Partner: Music Before 1800
Mozart in Prague
“The musicians established their fluency and command early on… The program carried the implicit message that great music is never an exit ramp out of reality. It’s an exploration of human experience in its widest and deepest dimensions.” —San Francisco Classical Voice
House of Time spirits us to Prague, the city that welcomed Mozart with far more warmth than he received back home in Vienna. The group performs a trio and quartets by Mozart as well as his expressive and richly scored Adagio for English Horn and Strings in C Major, K.580a. Bohemian music is represented by two pieces of František Krommer—his Variations on a Czech Folk Song, and his Quartet No. 1 in C Major; and by Vaclav Pichl’s String Trio in A Major.
