Mozart, Mozart, and more Mozart was the order of the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society Players' program Thursday night, specifically piano trios by the world's most popular composer.
With a pianist such as Mitsuko Uchida fulfilling the keyboard role, naysaying is not likely to be welcomed. But even Uchida's artistry and her colleagues' deft contributions didn't alleviate the feeling that three pieces by the same composer for the same instruments inevitably result in a soporific program.
The greatest delights came from the slow movements. The Larghetto of the Trio in B flat major (K. 502) was punctuated with pleasures; the Andante grazioso of the Trio in E major (K. 542) was not only gracious and graceful, but plied with inflections of poignance as well.
