Society for Chamber Music in Rochester: Mozart in France - 8/9/20

Mozart had big plans when he arrived in Paris; sadly for him, none of them panned out. For the second in our series, the Society for Chamber Music in Rochester brought Wolfgang back to the City of Lights, and surrounded his Kegelstatt Trio with three French composers for happier results. This concert was recorded on Sunday, December 16, 2018 in the Hochstein School of Music Performance Hall.
