Mozart Reflections at Bridgehampton Chamber Music Summer Festival (Site)

Thursday August 1, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

$10 – $75

Despite its ebullient spirit, Mozart’s Piano Quartet in E-flat major was written when he was in desperate personal circumstances. Kevin Puts’ And Legions Will Rise is, in the composer’s words, “about the power in all of us to transcend during times of tragedy and personal crisis.” Rounding out the program we present Mozart’s delightful A major flute quartet, and a world premiere commission from pianist and composer Michael Stephen Brown. The work is inspired by Tennyson’s The Lotus Eaters, who lived out their days in bliss.
