Mozart Clarinet Concerto

Who doesn’t know the absolute master piece for clarinet: the Mozart Clarinet Concerto. Especially the middle part (slow movement) is a worldwide hit! This concerto in A major was originally written for the famous clarinet player Anton Stadler in 1791. This marvelous piece is also the last purely instrumental work of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, written a few weeks before he died…

Remarkable is that the solo part is quite introvert, no big flashes with cadenzas and virtuoso tricks. just plain music, perfection in simplicity.

Listen to this great performance:
