Musicians from The Philadelphia Orchestra gather for an intimate chamber concert of two iconic works by Mozart.
Alongside their two Usher Hall concerts this year, some of the Philadelphia Orchestra’s finest musicians gather for an intimate chamber concert of two iconic works by Mozart.
The sublime Clarinet Quintet is justly one of the best-loved works in the chamber repertoire, showcasing not only its clarinet soloist’s agility and dexterity, but also the instrument’s long, singing melodies, above all in its poignant slow movement.
The Philadelphia Orchestra’s vibrant Music Director Yannick Nézet-Seguin is equally respected for his sensitivity and insights as a pianist. He joins his orchestral colleagues as soloist in Mozart’s elegant Piano Concerto No 12, composed to delight discerning Viennese audiences, in the composer’s own chamber version for keyboard and string quartet.
