FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR:
Our Taos Opening Night includes two of the greatest masters of all time, the icons W.A. Mozart and MFAF’s Composer-in-Residence, Chick Corea.  Performing in his own works as well as works of other jazz composers, Corea will collaborate with his wife, the vocalist Gayle Moran Corea.  Bookending his appearance will be one of Corea’s favorite composers, W.A. Mozart.  The great Mozart Piano Trio in G opens this concert, and the evening ends with one of the most favorite works of Mozart, the Quintet in G Minor with the richness of an added viola to a traditional String Quartet.  The Quintet has one of the most soulful and heart-wrenching openings and spans various characters throughout, ending positively with an upbeat last movement.
