Emily Wong: Playing piano for Mozart concert. Contributed photoA quintet of musicians from the Stamford Symphony will perform a “Mozart & Friends” recital at the Steinway Piano Gallery of Westport on Sunday Jan. 7 at 4 p.m.
Stamford Symphony Orchestra principal pianist Emily Wong will be joined by flutist Susan Rotholz, clarinetist Dean LeBlanc, violinist Robert Zubrycki and violist Rebecca Osborne.
The recital features a broad range of composers, each of whom either influenced Mozart or was influenced by him. The program opens with Trio Sonate, No. 3 by Giovanni Pergolesi.
The Beethoven Serenade, Op. 25 continues Mozart’s tradition of innovation and sets the stage for two more recent works: Rebecca Clarke’s Prelude, Allegro, and Pastorale and Charles Ives Largo. The recital finishes with Charles Duruflé‘s Prelude, Recitatif et Variations.
Tickets for the recital are $25. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (203) 325-1407 x305.
