In Mozart’s time, a divertimento implied a kind of pleasant background music, something to divert one’s attention when you were really doing something else. And yet, Mozart’s monumental Divertimento, K. 563 stands as one of the most profound, substantial pieces of his lifetime. We’ll hear that music performed by Cho-Liang Lin, Yura Lee, and Mark Kosower. Pianist Garrick Ohlsson opens the program with Chopin’s Venice-infused Barcarolle, Op. 60.
