SPCO with Martin Fröst

May 31 @ 8:00 pm

$11 – $26

Artistic Partner Martin Fröst explores two distinct, but essential, dimensions of the clarinet’s identity in this intimate chamber ensemble program. With Mozart’s late works featuring the clarinet and inspired by the virtuoso Anton Stadler, Mozart essentially gave birth to the soul of the clarinet. The Quintet for Clarinet and Strings is perhaps the finest example of this. In recent seasons, Fröst has delved deeply into the folk traditions that are central to the clarinet’s repertoire, and in the second half of the program the virtuosity of Fröst and the SPCO will be on full display in a wide range of styles from klezmer to tango.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Clarinet Quintet in A, Stadler

Georg Philipp Telemann: Presto for Clarinet and Orchestra

Astor Piazzolla: The Death of the Angel

Béla Bartók: Romanian Folk Dances

Göran Fröst: Klezmer Dance Nos. 2 and 3
