On January 24, in celebration of W. A. Mozart’s 250th anniversary year, Oxingale Records presents Mozart the Mason. Released just 3 days before the composer’s January 27th birth date, this tribute includes arresting performances of one of Mozart’s most important chamber works, the seldom heard Divertimento for String Trio, K 563, as well as three sets of Mozart’s Preludes and Fugues K 404a.
Mozart was indeed a Freemason, and he wrote music, including "The Magic Flute," that was directly related to Masonic ideas and rituals. 

Two works are included on this album; one, the "Divertimento for string trio, K. 563," has a tenuous connection to Freemasonry in that Mozart wrote it for a friend, Michael Puchberg, who was a fellow Mason and often lent Mozart money. It supposedly contains patterns and proportions of threes and sixes that relate to Masonic symbolism, but groups of two and three in Mozartian structures.
