The Chameleon Arts Ensemble resumes its 2019-2020 chamber music series with a tribute to Mozart titled “whose fragments we inherit.” Romanticized by history as the ultimate child prodigy, Mozart produced a staggering body of work in his 36 short years, glorious music of crystalline clarity and sublime beauty. With a masterpiece among masterpieces, his Quintet in A Major, K. 581 gave birth to the voice and soul of the clarinet. Steven Stucky’s Serenade for wind quintet brings Mozart’s popular entertainment form into the 21st century, and Schnittke’s Moz-Art for two violins pays tribute with more than a touch of Mozartean humor. Rounding out the program are Mendelssohn’s Variations Concertantes for cello and piano and Haydn’s “Gypsy” Trio in G Major.
Tickets are $49, $38 or $27 with $5 off for students and seniors. Performances take place on Saturday, February 29 at 8 PM and Sunday, March 1 at 4 PM at First Church in Boston. For more information or to order tickets, please call 617-427-8200 or visit http://www.chameleonarts.org.
