Mozart's String Quartet No. 19 in C, K 465, Major is nicknamed the "Dissonance" because of the bizarre-sounding (for Mozart) opening measures. This Friday (4/1 at 8 pm), author, commentator and conductor Rob Kapilow digs into the dissonance to find out "What Makes it Great." There will be an encore broadcast Saturday at 2 pm.
