Mozart at night

We know very little about the origins of what may be Mozart's most famous piece -- the Serenade in G, called "Eine Kleine Nachtmusick" (EYE-neh KLEYE-neh NAHKT-moo-zeek), or, A Little Night-Music. He composed it in the summer of 1787, but why he wrote it, or for whom, remains unknown. We'll hear a performance by musicians at the Linton Music Series in Cincinnati, Ohio.
