“Beauty of sound and elegance.” — Nice Matin

“A master musician.” — The New York Times

“The cellist Fred Sherry has been central to New York music for a half century, and no wonder: a dynamic, ebullient, and magnanimous artist and teacher.” — The New Yorker

“Her clear and transparent touch, her dynamic and finely persuasive play, revealed the temperament and the sensibility of a true Mozartian…” — Les Dernières Nouvelles d’Alsace



Artistic Director Michael Parloff will illuminate three of Mozart’s most dazzling works for strings and piano. This special multimedia events will connect the biographical facts of Mozart’s life with the musical facts of three magnificent works.

The G-major violin sonata was composed when Mozart was a young man eager to spread his creative wings and escape from the confining world of his despised employer, the Archduke of Salzburg. His valedictory violin sonata, K. 526, is a product of his full maturity, composed concurrently with his most dramatic opera, Don Giovanni. The concluding work, the searing Piano Quartet in G minor, K. 478, is universally regarded as one of Mozart’s greatest chamber masterpieces.

Four master musicians will perform the works in their entirety.
