Mozart Overture: Cosi fan tutte, Clarinet Concerto, Symphony no 38 'Prague' Ripon International Festival Spring Concert.
Mozart, and his music, was adored by Prague audiences and his opulent 'Prague' symphony was written in gratitude for their esteem. Powerful, intensely moving, with elaborate scoring and delectable writing for winds, the 'Prague' is a masterpiece of invention and beauty. His sublime Clarinet Concerto is performed by Michael Whight, one of the world’s finest musicians, who has performed with the Philharmonia, Royal Philharmonic, Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the Lindsay, Schidlof and Medici quartets, and recorded for Hyperion, Teldec and the BBC.
