Martin Fröst performs and conducts Mozart's Clarinet Concerto
Verbier Festival 2010
"Until you've heard Martin Fröst you really haven't heard the clarinet".
The Times is positive. And why shall we not dare to say: “untill you've heard Martin Fröst perform Mozart's Clarinet Concerto you can’t know anyything about this masterpiece?”
Composed in 1791, only a few months before Mozart’s death, this work is contemporary to the Austrian composer's most beautiful writings, such as the Magic Flute and the Requiem. This is one of the first works entirely dedicated to the recently born instrument.
A unique cast for Mozart's Quintet in C major
Faithful to the spirit of the Verbier Festival, five instrumental soloists come together to illustrate one of the most famous pages of chamber music. Leonidas Kavakos, Henning Kraggerud, Antoine Tamestit, Nobuko Imai and Frans Helmerson ecstatically perform Mozart's Quintet No. 4.
