This special all-Mozart program brings intimate, smaller ensemble works to Symphony Hall. Pianist Richard Goode, renowned for his interpretation of Mozart's piano music, joins BSO players for a work considered one of the composer's greatest chamber music masterpieces, the Piano Quartet in E-flat. Also on the program are two popular serenades, multi-movement works designed for entertainment during parties. The Serenata notturna for strings was composed during Mozart's time in Salzburg, when he wrote such works for the court of the Archbishop Colloredo. The Gran partita for winds and double bass-considered the greatest of all wind serenades-was a later piece.
