Classical – Mozart and Malbec
Genevieve's Theater Lounge
Peace Interludes are FREE music appreciation gatherings that unpack the rich traditions and diverse styles of great composers. Each month will feature a unique composer and drink pairing, providing a multi-sensory sip, listen, and learn experience that highlights a musical period.
It was the time for revolutions—the Industrial, the American, and the French. While the world was restructuring, the Classical period emphasized stability, less complication, and balance. During this time, the string quartet and symphony became popular musical forms, opening an even larger compositional landscape for both the composer and the listener. Harpsichords were replaced by pianos, while melodies soared out of scores. Simplify your evening with a Peace Interlude.
