Havana, April 26 (RHC) --The 4th La Ruta de Mozart Festival was held online over the weekend, dedicated to Havana's historian Eusebio Leal Spengler.

The event traditionally takes place at different venues across Old Havana with string quartets delighting their audiences with their versions of iconic pieces by Mozart. But this time, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, activities were moved to digital platforms, with broadcasts also on Cuban radio and television.

Beginning at 09:00 a.m. local time on Saturday and throughout the day, groups performed the work known as 'The Complete of Mozart's String Quartets,' consisting of 24 pieces for chamber format: violin I, violin II, viola and cello.

Internet users were able to enjoy performances by the Cuban quartets Polaris, Subdominante, Alma, Luna, Caturla, Festivo and Amadeus Mozart on the YouTube channel of the Lyceum Mozartiano de La Habana.

The La Ruta de Mozart Festival is an initiative of US virtuoso violinist Michael Dabroski, also director of the Vermont Mozart Festival, in collaboration with the Lyceum Mozartiano de La Habana and the City's Historian Office.
