300th Birthday Celebration of Gluck and C.P.E. Bach: Mozart's Musical Mentors
Special Concert Performance by Victoria Martino, violin and James Lent, piano

Wednesday, November 12, 2014, 7:30PM
$25 members, $30 nonmembers



Martino and Lent

In this special 300th anniversary concert, Victoria Martino and James Lent will perform a selection of works by Gluck and C.P.E. Bach that eloquently exemplify the “empfindsamer Stil” (“sensitive style”) created by these two composers.

The most influential and highly regarded composers of their time, Gluck and C.P.E. Bach instituted the musical reforms that marked the stylistic transition from the Baroque to the Classical. In this sense, they provide the essential missing link between J.S. Bach and Mozart. Underrated and largely neglected in subsequent centuries, their profound significance in the development of European music is only now being acknowledged by the musical world.

This special concert is the first in a three-part series by Victoria Martino and James Lent, exploring the development of music from the pre-classical to the romantic styles. The two artists will present their signature Mozart Marathon on January 24 and on March 6, 2015 they will perform the complete works by Johannes Brahms for violin and piano.
