Description

Youthful works or late style?   Mozart and Schubert produced remarkable compositions throughout their too-short lives -- works of extraordinary maturity, humanity and depth of feeling.  Mozart’s dramatic piano quartet and Schubert’s serenely lyrical octet, composed by a 29 year-old Wolfgang Amadeus and a 27 year-old Franz, are among of the greatest masterpieces of the chamber music repertoire, expressing the range of human emotions with an eloquence that would be astounding at any age. A top-notch ensemble of Houston-based performers and renowned visiting artists kicks off the season in grand style.
