Mostly Music:  Mozart
From his prodigy years performing for the royal families of Europe to his many masterworks composed in his brief 36 years of life, one of the greatest geniuses in music was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Hearing Mozart’s letters read, in addition to performances of his music (including his Fantasy in D minor, K. 397 and Adagio in B minor, K. 540 performed by Roberta Rust, piano), the concert will offer a revealing and poignant insight into the man and his very difficult adult life.
