The Art of Interpretation: Mozart Divertimento

Monday, March 1, 2021, 7:30 PM at ChamberMusicSociety.org - FREE EVENT

Violinist James Thompson, who was recently selected for CMS's Bowers Program for emerging artists, joins two chamber music veterans, violist Paul Neubauer and cellist Nicholas Canellakis, to discuss and perform Mozart's Divertimento in E-flat major. Mozart's six-movement string trio is universally considered to be miraculous: the finest work of its genre, a masterpiece of unparalleled ingenuity and beauty, and an eternal joy for listeners and performers alike.

The Art of Interpretation series combines discussion and performance elements to delve into great works from the perspective of the musicians. The series reveals how artists arrive at their interpretations of specific musical passages and gives audiences a sense of the artists' process as they prepare to perform a piece of music.

Video will begin here at 7:30 PM ET and remain on demand for one week.
