Da Camera Toronto presents Mozart's Salon: Duo Sonatas for Fortepiano and Violin. The concert features Guillaume Tardif, violin, and Andrea Botticelli, fortepiano, in a vibrant and intimate afternoon of chamber music. It takes place on November 26, 2017 at 3:00pm in Seeley Hall, Trinity College at the University of Toronto.|
Featuring music from "Mozart's Salon", this concert will use a replica of an Anton Walter fortepiano from c.1790. Known as Mozart's piano, the light action and crisp sound of this instrument illuminates these works and allows for greater intimacy with the partner violin. The fortepiano used in the concert is generously donated by the University of Toronto. Explore the original sound world of Mozart's music in a concert of his works for solo keyboard and keyboard/violin.
