In this lecture, composer, radio personality and CMS Resident Lecturer Bruce Adolphe is joined by CMS artists to examine Mozart's Quartet in C major for Strings, K. 465, Dissonance. The opening Adagio of Mozart's Dissonance Quartet was so extraordinary and shocking for its time that several composers attempted to "correct" Mozart's "errors" and Haydn remarked, "If Mozart wrote it, he must have meant it." Adolphe takes a close look at the Adagio, the so-called corrected versions, and also the brilliant Allegro that follows.
