What would Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart say to a young composer in 2021 and how would she respond? Mari Esabel Valverde explores this question in a new work commissioned specially for this concert by Byron Schenkman & Friends.

“Choosing your own path expresses that you have chosen to focus on things that really matter, things that truly define who you are.”

— Mari Esabel Valverde
