False Attributions: Opera, Sonatas and Folios composed by Peter J. Evans

The centerpiece of this concert is the new Opera Don Quijote's Death and Meta Re-Birth, which re-imagines events that Cervantes places at the end of Book I and the beginning of Book II. This opera was completed in time to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the publication of Book II in 1615. The concert also features newly-unearthed versions of the first movement of Mozart's famous C Major Sonata for Piano, KV545, as well as an open-ended folio (at the performers' discretion) for two violas.
