Mozart & Tchaikovsky
CSO Sessions - Episodes • 08-Oct-2020
The masterful skill of CSO musicians is on display in works as challenging to perform as they were to compose. Mozart quickly rewrote his serenade for six woodwinds to add a pair of oboes in a campaign to win a position in the Vienna Court. Tchaikovsky spent years trying to balance six virtuosic parts in his popular work for string ensemble.
