Concert 7 - Festival Finale
Mozart – String Quintet No. 5 in D major, K593;
Beethoven – Septet in E flat major, Op. 20.
The Festival Finale combines our second new Mozart piece, the first of the two “late” string quintets, the composers last word in the genre, with an old favourite, the Beethoven Septet for strings and winds. Not a piano to be seen, except in the dynamics, but stirring stuff nonetheless to end another Festival.
