If you think Mozart's string quartets simply make pleasant background music, your opinion will be transformed by this course. In 16 lectures of 45 minutes each, including a generous sampling of the music itself, Robert Greenberg discusses chamber pieces Mozart composed in Vienna from 1781 until his death 10 years later. Greenberg has a profound respect for Mozart and his music, yet he manages to be wonderfully irreverent about it. He also mixes in just enough biographical and historical detail to help listeners understand the music in context. To top it off, the lecture notes include Greenberg's unique "WordScores," text-based diagrams that show the structure of a composition in a way that requires minimal ability to read music.
