At 16 Mozart wrote his Divertimento in D. Full of playfulness and youthful exuberance, it gives a glimpse of the treasures he would gift to the world. Ginastera, at 18, wrote his flute quintet, “Impresiones de la Puna,” where the flute, like a dream of the Argentinian altiplano, floats and haunts, and joins the strings for a joyful, Latin dance! And at 26, Mozart’s Flute Quartet in C is a testament to the grace of his period, and to the possibilities of youth and brilliance.
