Unfortunately Sergio Durante is unable to present at the talk due to travel restrictions from Italy, and an alternative speaker will be present on the day.
The distinguished writer and musicologist Sergio Durante – Professor at the University of Padua, a member of the Mozart Academy in Salzburg and a former De Bosis Lecturer at Harvard University – explores the context of Mozart’s First String Quartet, composed in Lodi in March 1770.
The talk incorporates a live performance of the work, and also includes examples of the type of quartet writing with which Mozart would have come into contact during his time in Italy.
