The following is an update of ongoing permitting, construction and development projects in Palm Coast, through July 26 (the city administration’s full week in review is here):
Mozart’s Only String Trio, K563
From WQXR: “Over the course of his short life, Mozart composed an incredible amount of music. But he didn’t write for all ensembles equally. Trumpets, for instance, freaked him out, and so there’s a dearth of music for that instrument in his catalog. He only wrote one (that we know of) and it’s since been lost. While we’re sure he didn’t harbor a fear of string instruments, he only managed to complete one string trio, too.”
