This week's Ars Viva program

Mozart Rondo in C, K. 373
MozartViolin Concerto No. 5 in A, K. 219
MozartSymphony No. 41 in C, K. 551 Jupiter

Do you know whether Tuur will be there this week? It's the North American premiere of Zeitraum.

I am not sure. He was not at the rehearsal today which would be expected. The final rehearsal is tomorrow (Thursday) morning. Perhaps he is traveling. I will find out at the rehearsal or concert I guess.

Wonderful, I love the examples of hard passages and the way you interfaced them into your post. This is great for a young bassist like myself. Thank you!
