Valley of the Moon Music Festival
“Mozart’s Irrepressable Impresario: Ccountess Maria Von Thun” Maria Wilhelmine von Thun, a countess and keyboard player, hosted one of the most splendid salons of 18th-century Vienna. She is especially remembered for her patronage of Mozart and Beethoven, and the Festival’s opening concert on July 14 will feature Beethoven’s Trio in B-flat major, op. 11, with clarinetist Eric Hoeprich joining Tomkins, cello, and Zivian, fortepiano. Violinists Cynthia Freivogel and Carla Moore, together with Elizabeth Blumenstock on viola, will join Tomkins and Hoeprich in the concert’s finale, Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in A major. Additional works include a piano trio by Haydn and two preludes for fortepiano by Muzio Clementi.
