Omega Ensemble with guest conductor and clarinetist Paul Meyer and soloist Ben Hoadley (bassoon) under the artistic direction of David Rowden presents Three Parts Mozart in which the music of Mozart is ‘served’ three ways in an alluring feast of classical treats.
Guest directed by renowned French clarinetist and conductor Paul Meyer, Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A major, K.622, is delivered with a delicate interplay between the soloist and the ensemble, which gives rise to a performance that is beautiful for its graceful sensitivity.
For the first time, Omega Ensemble will take the stage as an expanded Chamber Orchestra with 23 musicians, to present this extravaganza of some of Mozart’s finest works.
Bassoonist Ben Hoadley performs Mozart’s earliest wind concerto, the Bassoon Concerto in B flat major, K. 191/186e with aplomb. Mozart’s clarinet concerto was the last instrumental piece before his death in 1791, and was only premiered two months prior by clarinet virtuoso Anton Stadler. Mozart had originally written this piece with for Stadler’s signature instrument the basset clarinet. The celebration concludes with one of Mozart’s greatest works – the Symphony No 40 in G minor, KV 550.
