Mozart’s bright and achingly beautiful basset clarinet concerto performed on the rare and richly voiced instrument of the period. Mozart enthusiastically embraced the clarinet and wrote the first major concerto for the then rarely utilised wind instrument. The Concerto in A major for basset clarinet was the great composer’s final instrumental work which he completed less than two months before his early death at age thirty-five.
The yearning Adagio is familiar to many from its evocative use in many well-known film scores such as Out of Africa. Rarely though is the concerto performed in concert on basset clarinet, the instrument which Mozart chose in his enduring adaptation of an earlier composition for basset horn.
Hear leading Australian period clarinetist Craig Hill deliver this beguiling work in a program also featuring Emma Black, who returns to our stage to perform Mozart’s Concerto for oboe in C.
