NORTH COUNTRY CHAMBER PLAYERS
WHITE MOUNTAINS MUSIC FESTIVAL
July 14 – August 19, 2018
WEEK SIX - 40TH ANNIVERSARY FINALE
In 1777, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed a Divertimento for 2 horns and strings to commemorate the name date of Salzburg’s Countess Maria Antonia Lodron. This remarkable work, filled with symphonic, dramatic and romantic elements, along with the NH premiere of Avner Dorman’s dynamic Piano Concerto in A, will provide a fitting end to the Chamber Players’ historic season.
