Back to Basics, or How to Stop Worrying and Just Play Mozart

Back to Basics, or How to Stop Worrying and Just Play Mozart

Thu, February 25, 2021 4:00 PM, EST

Mozart is a bit like the baseline for any good musician. Easy to listen to and notoriously hard to play. We are going back to what we love and are trained to play so all our further repertoire and knowledge comes from wrestling with Wolfgang A. What better way to prepare for a beginning of live performances and a hopeful return to normal than by doing a Master Cleanse?

Jesse Mills, Grammy-nominated violinist, Joel Noyes of the Metropolitan Opera, and myself are playing Mozart's beautiful and part cheeky, part serious Divertimento for String Trio from 1788. That's all. 45 minutes of bliss with our utter commitment and love for this music. "The end is the beginning, and the beginning is perfection."

We'll be streaming this concert LIVE from Julie Reed Yeboah Violins in New York City, who has graciously agreed to host this event.
