MARIA RADUTU AND MINETTI QUARTETT
“Prost” with Mozart – Classical music in a Vienna home | Curated by Maria Radutu
Chamber music | Concert | Specials | Adults
“Pleasant on the ear”, “halfway between too difficult and too easy”, and “brilliant”: that’s how Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart described his first piano concertos (which included K414) to his father in 1782. These works paid for the composer’s living expenses in Vienna, where he had settled the year before. Franz Schubert’s String Quartet in D minor, D 810, was the second masterpiece of the form that he composed in early 1824. Once more he reached back into his own earlier work for the slow movement, this time drawing on his Lied “Death and the Maiden”.
