Trio & Quintet, both feat. Clarinet - Mozart (two fascinating pieces - ASD 605)

£6.99

Product description

(featuring Gervase de Peyer on clarinet, with members of the Melos Ensemble)

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote both his Trio, and the Quintet, for Clarinet and various other instruments (see below), primarily for his friend, the clarinettist Anton Stadler. The two men first met, and played together, in Mozart's native Salzburg, but became close friends in their Vienna days. Stadler was renowned for the "soft, vocal quality" of his tone on the clarinet, not to mention his technical prowess. Indeed, the magic of Mozart's three pieces for Stadler (- the other being the Clarinet Concerto K.622 -) lie in the composer's success in unlocking Stadler's moods and humours.

Sadly, the friendship between the two men did not last : Mozart lent the clarinettist a substantial sum of money, which Stadler failed to repay, and this contributed to Mozart's financial woes, in his final years, when he also wrote three of his greatest Symphonies, 39-41.

1) I Andante 2) II Menuetto - Trio 3) III Allegretto

Side Two : Quintet in A major K.581 for Clarinet, Violins, Viola & Cello :-
