Forgotten Fame: Music of Mozart and His Contemporaries

The program features the works of three composers who worked around the same time, and whose ties to Paris helped acquaint them to each other. The 18th-century Alsatian composer, Jean-Fredéric Edelmann was admired by Mozart although his music fell into obscurity; when the much-admired J.C. Bach died in 1781, Mozart proclaimed “it’s a sad day for the world of music,” however his work soon faded from public notice. The works on the program were published in 1779, 1780, and 1781, respectively. The sonata by Edelmann most likely will enjoy its North American premiere.

Grand Harmonie(5in)March 6: Grand Harmony
Reicha's Wind Quintet in E Flat
Sarah Paysnick flute
Kristin Olson, oboe
Thomas Carroll, clarinet
Yoni Kahn, horn
Elizabeth Hardy, bassoon

Anton Reicha was an early innovator in writing for the wind quintet, and his position as composition professor at the Paris Conservatory gave him access to the best wind musicians in Paris. His quintet in Eb offers abundant displays of both instrumental virtuosity and Reicha’s skill at counterpoint.

Looking ahead:
March 13: ARTEK, Virtuoso Violin Sonatas
     Violin and harpsichord
March 20: Bartram and Jennings Duo, Songs of Henry and William Lawes
     Soprano and lute
