Romance and the Revolution – Mozart’s beloved Clarinet Quintet and exquisite Sinfonia Concertante
Our Revolutionary Romance concert will feature the beautiful rich sounds and textures of Classical period strings performing the most sublime works by Mozart and Spohr, along with the star of the basset clarinet Nicole van Bruggen.
Spohr introduces us to a revolutionary new world of string playing, before launching into Mozart’s famous Clarinet Quintet, written for the Viennese master clarinettist Anton Stadler. The Grande Sestetto Concertante, familiar to audiences as Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante for Violin and Viola, will be performed here in the magnificent chamber music version.
Louis Spohr (1784-1859) – Allegro Moderato from String Sextet in C major Op.140 (1848)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) – Clarinet Quintet in A major K.581 (1791)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Grande Sestetto Concertante in E flat major K. 364 (1779)
