Letters and Divertissement for string trio KV563



The show offers a real immersion in the world of one of the greatest genius of the history of music. Thanks to the juxtaposition of some of the most significant letters and of his last chamber music masterpiece (the Divertissement for string trio KV56, written at the end of his life, where all his previous compositional experiences seem to converge and sublime) it is possible to grasp and appreciate both the search for an aesthetic ideal of harmony and perfection, and an everyday life made of small event and almost without ideal impulses.

So a Mozart “man of his time”, of that time which soon after that, (the Storming of the Bastille took place the year after the trio’s composition) would start its inexorable decline to make way for the bourgeois era, characterized by other relationships between the emotions of the “I” of the artist and his art.

The eclectic Tullio Solenghi, with his skillful irony and overflowing personality, will join to the performance of the Divertissement, by creating a wonderful and intense union alternating ironies, emotions, jests and witticisms.

Readings by Tullio Solenghi


Mozart K563. An absolute masterpiece for abundance of harmonic and contrapuntal invention and expressive variety of thematic play, full of feeling and moods. Sophisticated and refined, a perfect balance between the “erudite” writing and the popular freshness which are meld in an unique element. Overflowing beauty made of virtuosities, imitation play among the parties, meditative-spiritual feelings, peasant themes, the carillon style and the refinement of the instrumental embellishment.

A contagious vital energy which guarantees an unrivaled  emotional and sensorial involvement.

The pleasure of playing together, the sharing of the performance’s emotion and  the appreciation of the aesthetic beauty are the elements which led the three performers to join in Trio. Perfect ensemble for number and balance of the parties, where the individuality of each musician is respected in the instrumental appearance and enhanced in the chamber dimension.

The years of individual zeal, both chamber and orchestral, the personal experiences, the research for the ensemble sound and the continuous exchange of ideas and intuitive and sensitive knowledges make the work of the group highly interesting and productive, seeking to give to the listener, moments in which stimulating the imagination, arousing the thinking, creating emotions.
