MOZART Divertimento in E-flat, K. 563
The word Divertimento usually implies something light‐hearted, even frivolous, but this Mozart work is perhaps the most sublime of all his chamber pieces. Leading up to this we have an intriguing mixture of lesser-known trios by famous composers, and two duo rarities. Adrian Sutton is better known for a string of commissions for the National Theatre, including War Horse, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night‐time, and, most recently, Angels in America.
