MEET THE MUSICIANS 5: FUN

MOZART Divertimento in E flat for String Trio K.563

Introduced and played by ENSEMBLE 360

The title Divertimento (Fun) suggests a light piece intended as a distraction from boredom. Mozart’s six-movement work for string trio is certainly hugely entertaining, but there are also moments of great originality and profound insight. It may be Mozart’s only work for this instrumental combination, but it is a magnificent illustration of the rich variety of texture and enticing sonority that can be achieved by just three players.

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

Running time: About 55 minutes
