Mozart-like masters – Felix Mendelssohn and Camille Saint-Saens
Certain composers have been credited with the complimentary phrase: ‘he was the Mozart of his time’. What are the qualities a composer needs in order to be considered Mozart-like? Among them are proficiency, prodigy, lightness of texture, compositional ease, technical facility, and an irrepressible musical energy.
Of all the composers that came after Mozart, two have been compared to him more than any others: Felix Mendelssohn and Camille Saint-Saëns. The two dramatic works in this program are fine examples of the mature style of these Mozart-like masters.
Please note: For this concert, cellist Meta Weiss will replace Umberto Clerici.
