"Why are you called Mainly Mozart String Quartet?"
We are named after Wolfgang Amadaeus Mozart who lived from 1756 until 1791. He lived during the period known as the "Age of Enlightenment" when great advances were made in Science and the Arts.
Mozart's creative output was staggering despite living only to the age of 34, short even for the times. He was a child prodigy pianist, a competant violinist, and began composing at the age of 13. Over 21 years he wrote more than 600 pieces of music including full length symphonies, concertos, and operas, plus significant choral and keyboard music.
Our quartet plays his chamber music - in particular music from his 23 string quartets.
If you google Mozart you will get at least 100 million hits. Try these first ...
