Tonight's Euro Classic: A Mozart Divertimento

Posted at 2:36 AM on November 11, 2009 by Ward Jacobson

Back in Mozart's day, the Divertimento was considered light-hearted, background music. Just don't give it that label today! Tonight's EURO CLASSIC concert on Classical Minnesota Public Radio is a performance of Mozart's Divertimento in E flat, with the Balkan Chamber Academy recorded live in Belgrade last February. Stay up late and join us just after midnight (12:05am, Thursday).

Saturday night, around 8:05, there's another EURO CLASSIC, with the Emerson String Quartet in a performance of Haydn's String Quartet No. 73, recorded live last June in Schwetzingen, Germany.
