What Makes It Great?® Mozart Clarinet Concerto

Mozart’s final concerto—and one of the last of all his works—the Clarinet Concerto is a haunting, soulful piece. The mellow tones of the clarinet were the perfect medium to express his late-life emotions, including his dismay at the ill health of his deeply cherished wife, Constanze. Rob Kapilow and the TSO’s distinguished Principal Clarinet first take you to the piece’s heart; then they perform it, complete. (Pictured: Joaquin Valdepeñas, TSO Principal Clarinet)

Concert running time is approximately two hours including a 20-minute intermission. The first half includes Rob Kapilow's What Makes It Great?® presentation. In the second half, the Orchestra will perform the Mozart Clarinet Concerto, followed by a Q&A with the audience.
