Mozart in Paris

Don’t miss our only Ohio-area performance in 2018-19 of this popular program presented by Music from the Western Reserve!

With plentiful performance opportunities and a booming market for published music, Europe’s most fashionable city should have been ripe for the young Mozart’s picking! But the strong-willed, young composer lost out when he refused to network with influential people or accommodate French tastes. Montreal-based cellist Elinor Frey joins Les Délices for this special program that pairs chamber music by Mozart for oboe & strings with Paris’s toasts of the town – Boccherini, Gluck, and more.
