Latest Acclaim
There is intricate Mozart, dramatic Mozart and even bombastic Mozart (think Don Giovanni’s descent into hell), but the Mozart that Piotr Gajewski and his National Philharmonic — or a chamber-size subset thereof — brought to Strathmore on Saturday was Mozart at his sunniest, full of grace and youthful spirits.
