“A conversation among four intelligent people.” Goethe, 1829
The common comparisons between chamber music and artful conversation reflect the social settings in which Mozart’s chamber music was originally played—mostly in salons, among
friends, for their own entertainment (rather than in formal concerts). Professor Klorman will discuss how this social context influences how the music was composed and could inspire new ways of listening today.
We will be treated to a live performance of a Mozart duo by Professors Klorman (viola) and Strauss (violin).
