Internationally-renowned Baroque violinist, Juilliard Historical Performance artistic advisor and artist-in-residence Monica Huggett leads a program of select string quintets by Mozart and his colleague and friend, Czech composer Myslivecek. Upon programming these works, Ms. Huggett remarked, "it is generally accepted that the combination of two violins, two violas, and cello inspired Mozart to compose chamber music of paralleled beauty and depth...The string quintet was a relatively rare combination at that time, but Myslivecek composed some light-hearted pieces in that genre which may have sown the seed in Mozart's imagination"
