As suggested by the title, a divertimento was intended as light, relaxed music, a diversion for the audience. This description can't begin to do justice to Mozart's "Divertimento in E-flat Major," an expansive string trio widely considered one of Mozart's greatest chamber works. While "Divertimento" has the jaunty passages we associate with the composer, at times the mood is serious indeed, and the overall quality is somewhat bittersweet. As always, Mozart handles the simple structure of the sonata form with great sophistication. Recorded on 11/22/2017. (#33155)
