VIDEO: NZSO - Mozart

From Music Alive, 7:30 pm on 24 June 2020

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart meets his match in the playful flair of Swedish clarinettist Martin Fröst.

The Times suggests, ‘Until you’ve heard Martin Fröst, you really haven’t heard the clarinet’.

Programme:

MOZART: Clarinet Concerto in A, K622  - Martin Fröst (clarinet), New Zealand Symphony Orchestra conducted by Edo de Waart

Mozart’s irresistible 'Clarinet Concerto' is full of beautifully delicate detail that highlighted this relative new instrument at the time. It was one of  Mozart’s final compositions, written while he was working on his 'Requiem' and following on from 'The Magic Flute'.

Recorded in April 2017 by RNZ Concert.
