Instrumentation: Clarinet

Mozart did not make extensive use of the clarinet until comparatively late in his career - but he wrote exquisitely for the instrument - and the two scores dedicated to his friend - Anton Stadler—the Quintet - KV581 and the Concerto - KV622—are among his most beautiful works. Both - incidentally - belong to the final year of his life. The Clarinet Concerto is in the conventional three movements - with music that transcends conventionality in its remarkable sense of repose and serenity - and what Bernhard Paumgartner has called 'its incredible warmth of tone - perfect balance and unmatched perfection of style.' The concerto had a tremendous resurgence in popularity with the release of the Academy-Award-winning 1985 film 'Out of Africa - ' of which the piece formed a major element. This deluxe 2-CD set includes the concerto in its original key with printed parts for both A and B-flat clarinets - and adds a repitched version for B-flat clarinetists - allowing players of that instrument easier execution plus the ability to learn the same fingerings as the composer's intended A clarinet for performance purposes.
