The Courts Of Europe

During the heyday of classical music in the 16th through 19th centuries composers were closely associated with the aristocracy of Europe who served both as patrons of the composers and as appreciative audiences. On Jan. 23-24 the Regina Symphony Orchestra will recreate that aura with this chamber concert at Government House.

Composers featured in the program include¬†Mozart (Oboe Quartet KV370), Boccherini (Quintet for Flute) and Zich (Bohemian Suite). Saturday’s concert is at 8 p.m., while Sunday’s concert goes at 1:30 p.m.

You can find more information on the RSO website, and to give you a sense of what to expect here’s a quartet performing the first movement of the Mozart piece at the 2011 Santa Fe Music Festival:
