Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto

MELBOURNE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

PART OF SYMPHONIC – AN ORCHESTRAL AND CHORAL SERIES.

The clarinet is known as the smooth talker of the orchestra; capable of stunning warmth and beauty. Experience its dynamic versatility showcased in two works, performed by two brilliant virtuosi.

First is Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto: a perennial favourite, and the total package as far as concertos go. Its lyrical second movement has an endearing honesty, and is framed by two charming fast movements: a bright and cheery allegro, and a playfully elegant finale. Bringing it to life is world-class soloist Michael Collins, who also leads the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO) in this performance.

Collins then takes the conductor’s baton for the next work: a brand-new clarinet concerto by MSO Composer in Residence Paul Dean. And who better to perform the solo in this exciting premiere than Dean himself, another clarinetist of international renown.

You’ll struggle to stay still in Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, which makes for an exhilarating climax to this concert. A work with no real slow movement, the symphony was described by Richard Wagner as ‘the apotheosis of the dance’.
