Concertos for Bassoon & Clarinet - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - ASD 344

£5.99

Product description

(performed by Gwydion Brooke, bassoon, and Jack Brymer, clarinet, with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sir Thomas Beecham)

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Concerto in B flat major for bassoon and orchestra, was the first that the Austrian wrote, being completed in June 1774. The first and last movements, both display to the full the bassoon soloist's agility, and Wolfgang did not hesitate to take to the full, the instrument's top three-octave compass, and then make it scurry around when it did get there.

There are also many touches of humour in this concerto, including the isolated drop notes, and also the bassoon galloping away in triplet time, in the finale, after a stately orchestral tutti.

Side One : Concerto in B flat major, K.191, by Mozart (for bassoon and orchestra) :-
1) I Allegro 2) II Andante ma Adagio 3) III Rondo (Tempo di Minuetto)

The Concerto in A major, for clarinet and orchestra, was written about two months before Amadeus died. There is evidence that he used a section of an incomplete Concerto for Basset-Horn in this concerto, albeit transporting it up a tone. Wolfgang's expression is particularly intense in this concerto, both following, and breaking with, convention.

Side Two : Concerto in A major, K.622, by Mozart (for Clarinet and orchestra) :-
1) I Allegro 2) II Adagio 3) Rondo (Allegro)

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) EX/EX-.
