Mozart: Flute Quartet in D
Mozart: String Quintet in G minor
Cheryl Frances-Hoad’s ground-bass Invocatio has a folk-like feel: written in memory of Pamela Majaro, who founded the Cavatina Trust, its deliberately childlike quality reflects the trust’s work taking music to young people.
Sandwiching it are two magnificent chamber works by Mozart – music often described as ‘too easy for children, too difficult for adults.’ Beguiling flautist Claire Wickes joins the New Paths team for Mozart’s sunny D major quartet, while the tempestuous G minor quintet features the addition of a second viola, giving the music extra gravitas and endless possibilities for contrapuntal play.
