Mozart’s genius was so extraordinary that he was able to learn from and, at the same time, enlighten other great masters of the 18th century. Both Franz Joseph Haydn and Christoph Willibald Gluck were giants who changed the course of music history in their respective specialties; Haydn with his invention and reinvention of the string quartet and the symphony, and Gluck with his transformation of the operatic form. Mozart, who met and learned from both during his lifetime, could not have produced the amazing body of work he left for us without the groundbreaking efforts of these two innovators, who, in turn were both impacted in their later output and, to some extent, in the direction of their careers, by Mozart’s “new” compositions.
The North Country Chamber Players’ Gala Program, ‘Mozart in the Mountains,’ will explore this remarkable intersection of talent using timeless examples of the dynamic, passionate, poignant and joyful music of Haydn, Gluck and Mozart, surrounded by the grace and grandeur of the New Hampshire’s beautiful White Mountains, in the elegant comfort of the Crystal Ballroom of the Mountain View Grand Resort in Whitefield.
