A clarinet showcase with two brilliant virtuosi
The clarinet is known as the smooth talker of the orchestra. Cheeky and sometimes raunchy, it’s also capable of stunning warmth and beauty. In this concert, you’ll experience the clarinet’s dynamic versatility showcased in two works, performed by two brilliant virtuosi.
First is Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto: a perennial favourite brought to life by world-class soloist Michael Collins, who also leads the 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, another clarinettist of international renown who will perform its debut.
Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony provides the 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’.
Presented by Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
