MOZART AND BEETHOVEN:

QUINTETS FOR FORTEPIANO AND WINDS


In a letter addressed to his father Leopold, Mozart wrote on April 10th, 1784: “I have written two grand concertos, and also a quintet […] which was received with extraordinary applause. I consider it myself to be the best thing I ever wrote in my life. How I wish you could have heard it; and how beautifully it was executed!” The quintets of Mozart and Beethoven are true little jewels of the chamber music repertoire, engaging the audience with a variety of emotions: opera-like dialogues and improvisation, drama and humor… An experience made of contrasts!
