Mozart

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

Mozart's relationship with his father was one of love and mutual respect, but not subserviance. He broke away from Leopold's control when he moved to Vienna. We explore that rupture with the help of scholars Neal Zaslaw and Jane Glover. And we listen to Mozart's first foray into being a freelancer: a Sonata for Piano and Violin, K. 379, played by Benny Kim and Marc Neikrug at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival.
