A sublime and masterful duo by Mozart opens a program celebrating the art of the string quintet, a genre virtually invented by the viola-playing Mozart which allows for the addition of a second viola to the hallowed ensemble of the string quartet. Mozart's six quintets set the standard for later masters to emulate, as you will hear in Dvořák's exuberant "American" quintet, composed in Spillville, Iowa.
