The opening concert of our 2017 season begins with Mozart's effervescent and joyful Flute and Harp Concerto — music for a celebration as only Mozart could have written. The Brahms Clarinet Sonata in E-flat turns inward to plumb emotional depths, from turbulent passion to soaring romanticism. The program ends with one of the Formosa Quartet's best-loved pieces, arranged by none other than first violinist Jasmine Lin. Her take on well-loved Grappelli jazz tunes brings quartet playing to an entirely raucous, riotous, and rousing level.
