Newly appointed Artistic Partner Jörg Widmann presents an introductory showcase that highlights his many talents as clarinettist, composer and conductor. He introduces the first of Mendelssohn’s five great symphonies written by a fifteen-year-old composer. It is the epitome of youth as it bursts with energy. Widmann performs two of his own compositions Insel der Sirenen for chamber orchestra – music of glittering, playful variety and sheer sonic brilliance. His virtuosic Fantasie, inspired by commedia dell’arte, has been described as ‘the most beautiful circus music ever written’. The hugely popular Mozart clarinet concerto in A major (K. 622), which featured in the 1985 movie Out of Africa, remains one of the best-known clarinet pieces of today and was one of Mozart’s final compositions.
