RETURN OF THE WOLFGANG!
Sunday, May 22, 7:00 pm – Church of St. Matthew
Now in its 26th season, The WolfGang reappears after a pandemic drought. We are very excited to perform flutist Paul Jacobson’s new transcription for The WolfGang of Mozart’s last symphony, #41 in C (“Jupiter”). In a slightly delayed homage to Beethoven’s 250th anniversary (two years after the fact), pianist Gail Olszewski and cellist Jane Cords-O’Hara will perform Beethoven’s Sonata in G for Piano & Cello, Op. 5 #2. Rounding out the program will be Mozart’s Rondo in A, played by Gail Olszewski, piano.
The WolfGang, as the name implies, is a Mozart-era chamber ensemble comprising instrumental virtuosi who perform on late 18th century instruments, including a replica of a 1785 Stein piano identical to one that Mozart himself used, a string trio and late 18th century flute. We perform music of Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven and their contemporaries and predecessors, obscure and well-known, and strive to make the music of this lively era accessible, contemporary, and exciting for our 21st century audiences.
