Bridgehampton Chamber Music Summer Festival at Home: All About Mozart
BCM Summer Festival at Home is a series of hour-long programs premiering on consecutive Sundays at 6:30 pm beginning July 26 on the BCMF YouTube channel and remaining available for one week. Each program, which opens with an introduction from BCM Artistic Director Marya Martin, who will also interview featured performers and composers, will present favorite performances from recent festivals.
We kick off our 2020 Summer Festival At Home with a virtual concert dedicated to Mozart, perhaps classical music’s best known composer. Mozart was a conundrum – he wrote music of exacting elegance and refinement, but personally was drawn to bawdy humor and absurdity. In this program, we feature two gorgeously composed works for winds and strings, and intersperse them with contemporary Russian composer Alfred Schnittke’s tongue-in-cheek ode to the Austrian master. Marya Martin talks with Paul Moravec and cellist Nicholas Canellakis.
This program can be viewed until August 2.
