Sundqvist + ANAM Musicians: Mozart & Crusell

Mon 20 May @ 11:00 - 12:15

$42 – $49

GLORIES OF THE CLARINET

Musicians from the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM), alongside Finnish director/clarinetist Christoffer Sundqvist, present two of the earliest works in the modern clarinet canon.

Christoffer directs ANAM Musicians through Bernhard Henrik Crusell’s Clarinet Concerto No.2 – the first of two works in this program of passion and virtuosity. Considered a clarinet celebrity in his day, Crusell’s deep understanding of the instrument’s capabilities is illustrated through the haunting beauty and rich tapestry of his often-forgotten concerto.

In a seamless blending of soloist and strings with unparalleled musical elegance, Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet is often considered the jewel in the composer’s late Chamber Music crown. As the intimate dialogue between clarinet and string quartet begins to unfold, so too do the intricacies and tenderness of Mozart’s signature compositional style.
