Mozart and Debussy

Première Rhapsodie
Trio for Clarinet, Viola and Piano in E-flat Major, K 498, “Kegelstatt”
Préludes for Solo Piano
Piano Quintet in E-flat Major, K 493

Mozart and Debussy are not two composers that one often associates together. Mozart is the central figure of the Classical period, whose music is epitomized by elegance and symmetry. Debussy, on the other hand, introduced new notions of color and sound at the beginning of the 20th century. There is an individual sensuality that permeates each of their music, especially in the slow movement of Mozart’s E-flat Major piano quartet, and in Debussy’s Première Rhapsodie. You can also find it in the other pieces on the program, and we hope that you can hear new connections between these two great composers.
