Artistic Director Dietlinde Turban Maazel and the renowned Castleton Chamber Players will present the “Quintessential Mozart” Festival on Saturday, April 22, and Sunday, April 23, featuring performances of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s six string quintets—rarely performed together—plus a one-on-one conversation between New York Times best-selling food columnist and author Melissa Clark and Castleton Chamber Player cellist and podcaster Daniel Lelchuk.

On Saturday, audience members will have the opportunity to meet Melissa Clark and the Chamber Players at a reception and book-signing immediately after the conversation.

The April 22 concert will be followed by a gala dinner in Castleton’s Great Room.

The April 23 concert will be preceded by a champagne brunch.

“This is a unique opportunity to hear these six exquisite chamber pieces performed together, which is as unusual as it is exciting,” raves Dietlinde. “These works represent the full range of Mozart’s genius as it evolved from the first, written when he was 17 years old, to the last, written in 1791, the year he died.”
The Castleton Chamber Players, led by internationally acclaimed violinist Eric Silberger and cellist Daniel Lelchuk, will be joined by violinist Eric Gratz, and violists Michael Klotz and Katherine Murdock to complete the quintet. Gratz, former concert master of the San Antonio Symphony, Klotz, an instructor and artist-in residence at Florida International University, and Murdock, who is a professor of viola at the University of Maryland School of Music, all have distinguished international careers as soloists, ensemble players, and recording artists with some of the world’s most revered orchestras and chamber groups.
