“All-Out Amadeus!” Virtual Recital

“One would be hard-pressed to find more of Mozart’s musical mastery than in his chamber music. From his inventive violin sonatas and piano trios to his ground-breaking piano quartets, these works also served to incorporate Mozart’s own pianistic virtuosity in his music. Playing these pieces with my OMP colleagues is a complete joy!” – Kelly Kuo, Artistic Director & Conductor

This virtual concert premieres on Saturday, May 1 at 7:30 p.m. and is available on-demand until May 31.
