Friday evening’s concert opens with Mozart’s Sonata for piano, four hands in C Major K. 521. The last of his four-hand piano compositions, and one the composer himself described as “rather difficult,” this sonata offers technical challenge for each player. The Concert Aria which follows, Ch’io mi scordi di te? demonstrates Mozart’s love for the human voice with its unique myriad of colors and dramatic possibilities. The first half of the concert concludes with the Queen of the Night’s Aria from The Magic Flute which never fails to dazzle and amaze. Listen to the soundclip embedded in this page below to hear Alexandra Batsios brilliantly sing this awe-inspiring aria live in concert. The night closes with Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, one of the most beloved pieces of classical music.
