Mozart Divertimento K. 136
Bach Piano Concerto No. 1
Schubert Mass No. 2 in G Major
The brilliant inventiveness and virtuosity of the D Major Divertimento is, to echo the words of Alfred Einstein, “a masterpiece of masterpieces, on the smallest possible scale.” It is followed by Bach’s Piano Concerto No. 1, among the first concertos written for keyboard. The concert concludes with Schubert’s famous Mass No. 2 in G Major, composed in less than a week in 1815. All but unknown during Schubert’s life, it has become one of his most popular sacred works.
