Here’s a program that whirls and swirls with quirky humor, unexpected angles, and is jam-packed with personality. Following an irreverent introduction (with whistling!), Mozart’s cheerfully elegant piano concerto is even more brilliant as an intimate chamber ensemble. A growing “Vortex” of strings has cello at its center, then Poulenc’s whimsical Sextet for winds and piano adds a little Jazz Age wittiness and brings this joyous program to its exuberant finale.
