Event Description

The ‘prodigy of all prodgies’, W.A. Mozart composed his famous Kegelstatt trio, (the German word Kegelstatt means "a place where skittles are played"), a playfully delightful work written for a family with young children with whom Mozart spent time.
French composer Saint Saëns had perfect pitch, a mastery of Latin and composed his first piece at the age of 3, which now resides in the Bibliothèque nationale in France. A child prodigy on the piano, he gave his first public recital at the age of 10.

Max Bruch’s 8 pieces for viola, clarinet and piano, were written as a gift for his talented clarinetist son.

Czech composer Martinu was a child prodigy violinist and upon giving his first public concert in his countryside hometown, the townspeople rallied to raise funds for his schooling at the prestigious Prague Conservatory, where his interests soon turned to composition. The three madrigals for violin and viola, a ‘barn-burner’ of a piece , were inspired by Mozart’s duos for violin and viola.
