    BCMS presents Mozart, Mendelssohn & Francaix

     More like a miniature horn concerto than true chamber music, the Mozart Horn Quintet is so delightfully mischievous one loses sight of the wickedly difficult horn part. The sextet that follows premiered just three days after Beethoven’s ninth symphony at one of Berlin’s most coveted social events, the bi-weekly gatherings hosted by the Mendelssohn family. The season concludes with Françaix’s À Huit, best described in the composer’s words as “musique pour faire plaisir” – music to please.

    Horn Quintet in E-flat major, K. 407
