ENSEMBLE 360

MOZART Flute Quartet No.3 in C K.285b
MOZART Horn Quintet in E flat K.407
MOZART String Quintet in G minor K.516

For 1991, the year of the bicentenary of Mozart’s death, the conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt proposed that the most fitting tribute to the composer would be to perform none of his music – that way, the world would understand what would have been missed had Mozart never lived.

We take a different view and in the second of three concerts celebrating this uniquely gifted composer, Ensemble 360 presents his String Quintet in G minor. In Mozartian terms this piece is unusually melancholic in character, though his more typical uplifting spirit is restored in an infectiously lively finale.

 Presented by Music in the Round, as part of Sheffield Chamber Music Festival 2018
