Pre-concert Lectures at 7:00 PM with George Shangrow: Mozart
A child prodigy like none other, this lad's depth of musical understanding while still in the single digits baffled important musical thinkers of his time, who tested his talents skeptically. We'll follow the Boy Wonder and his progress into (youthful!) maturity - and experience the music of contemporaries who influenced and impressed him such as Johann Christian Bach and Joseph Haydn, and Johann Sebastian Bach.

Pre-concert Lecture at 2:00 PM in Moline and at 7:00 PM in Iowa City with Oleg Timofeyev: The Russian 7-String Guitar of Mozart's time
Virtuosos of the Russian 7-string guitar, who emerged during Mozart's lifetime, participated in a golden age of the guitar which continued through what might have been Mozart's prime had he not died at 35. This program follows Mozart's virtuoso spirit as it evolved through the guitar, the flute, the viola and the keyboard into the beginning of a new millennium - the 19th century.
