‘Andrew Seymour showed why he’s one of the best in the business with his meltingly beautiful performance of movements from Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto.’
Mozart had a special fondness for the clarinet and in his Clarinet Concerto, which was written in the last few months of his life, he produced a work of profound and transcendent beauty. The instrument sings across all of its registers, from the rich and shadowy depths to the bright and sunny heights. This most beloved of all clarinet concertos is performed in this concert by Andrew Seymour, TSO Principal Clarinet, an artist noted for his nuanced and sensitive musicianship.
Music with a French flavour makes up the remainder of the concert, including Honegger’s evocative Pastorale d’été and Bizet’s joyous Symphony in C.
