Sarasa Ensemble: Beauty Through Adversity

March 12 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The Sarasa Chamber Music Ensemble presents one of Mozart’s most incredible works of chamber music in two concert performances Friday, March 12 at the Brattleboro Music Center.

The concerts, titled “Beauty through Adversity: Mozart’s Divertimento in E-flat major, KV 563 for string trio,” feature Katherine Winterstein on violin, Jenny Stirling on viola, and Jennifer Morsches on the cello.

As we all face individual difficulties during these extraordinary times, Mozart’s music can help lift spirits and remind audiences of the healing powers of music on all levels. Composed in 1788, Mozart’s six-movement work showcases every element we admire so much in the composer: elegance, wit, pathos, virtuosity, profundity, earthiness and humor. The concert title, “Beauty through Adversity,” recognizes that Mozart’s brilliance and genius shine through this piece,  despite the many obstacles he faced at the time: penury, the death of his baby daughter and a dismissive public, unwilling to schedule a performance of his recently penned (and which turned out to be his final) three symphonies.

Tickets for two limited-seating concerts – at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. — are $20 for general admission and seniors, $10 for students, and free for those under 12 years of age. (Note – The BMC follows the State of Vermont and Town of Brattleboro COVID guidelines.) A performance also will be streamed online at www.sarasamusic.org Saturday, March 20, at 7.30 p.m.
