Midday concert to feature Mozart masterpiece



ELLSWORTH — Among his last chamber works, Mozart’s intimate “Divertimento for String Trio in E-Flat Major, K563” is the most ambitious composition the Austrian composer ever created for strings alone.

Based in New York, the Noree Chamber Soloists will perform the chamber masterwork at 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, at the General Bryant E. Moore Community Center on State Street. Admission is free.

Completed in Vienna in 1788, the piece for string trio is noted for its exceptional scope, innovative instrumental writing, and emotional dignity.

Hosted by the Ellsworth Community Music Institute, the concert is sponsored jointly by the city of Ellsworth and a generous private donor.

The guest musicians include violinist Harriet Langley, violist Grace Takeda and cellist Yi Qun Xu. The musicians are affiliated with The Juilliard School, Curtis Institute, New England Conservatory of Music, and the Manhattan School of Music.
