Mozart’s doctor once advised him to rest from the pressures of composing, perhaps relaxing himself by bowling. While Mozart did indeed take up bowling, it seems he wrote his beloved Kegelstatt Trio while playing the very game his doctor recommended as a rest from composition. Inspired by this humorous tale, “Bowling with Mozart” features special guest artists playing oboe, clarinet, bassoon, and French horn in performances of Mozart’s Kegelstatt Trio, Horn Quintet, and Beethoven’s own Quintet for Piano and Winds.
