Blom / Tjeknavorian / Mitterbauer / Fliedl
Mozart's only completed string trio, the Divertimento K 563, is one of the most fascinating chamber music works ever written - and yet it remains an insider's tip to this day. Written immediately after Mozart's last three symphonies in the summer of 1788, it shares their musical richness and profundity. In terms of length, with a performance time of about three quarters of an hour, it even surpasses all other of his chamber music works. That Mozart nevertheless dubbed the trio a »divertimento« - that is, a piece of light music - must be considered a puzzling understatement. In any case, this multi-layered music offers plenty to talk about - and is thus just the right topic for Philipp Blom and his guests: chamber music partners of our portrait artist Emmanuel Tjeknavorian this year are violist Benedict Mitterbauer and cellist Jeremias Fliedl, students of Heinrich Schiff and Clemens Hagen, among others, and of Veronika Hagen, respectively.
