Mozart 's Clarinet Concerto in A majorK. It consists of three movements, in a fast—slow—fast succession:. As there is no autograph for Jost Michaels concerto and as it was published posthumously, it is difficult to understand all of Mozart's intentions. Mozart originally intended the piece to be written for basset horn, as Anton Stadler was also a virtuoso basset horn player, but eventually was convinced the piece would be more effective for clarinet.
Even Hubert Reich Mozart's day, the basset clarinet was a rare, custom-made instrument, so when the piece was published posthumously, a new version was arranged with the low notes Westphalia Symphony Orchestra* to regular range. The modern scoring of the work is for solo clarinet in Atwo flutestwo bassoonstwo horns in A and D, often transcribed for horns in F[ citation needed ] and strings.
The concerto opens with a sonata-form movement in A major. The form of the movement is as follows:. The first theme Jost Michaels an orchestral ritornello that is joyful and light:. It soon transforms into a flurry of sixteenth notes in descending sequenceplayed by the violins and flutes while the lower instruments drive the piece forward. After the medial caesuraClarinet Concerto In A K. 622 - Mozart* strings begin a series of canons before the first closing theme, featuring dueling violin I's and violin II's, Hubert Reich.
The second closing theme is much more subtle until the fanfare of its final two bars. As the soloist enters, the clarinet repeats the opening theme with the expected added ornamentation.
As the orchestra restates the main theme, the clarinet traverses the whole range of the instrument with several flourishes. The secondary theme begins in the parallel minorand eventually tonicizes C major before arriving in the dominant keyE major.
At the end of the E-major section, there is a short pause, where the soloist conventionally improvises a short eingang cadenzaalthough no context is offered for a true cadenza. The orchestral ritornello returns, ending with the second closing theme.
Before the formal orchestral Alvin Lee - Zoom leading into the recapitulationMozart writes a series of descending sequences with the cellos and bassoons holding suspensions over staccato strings. As is conventional in Classical concerto form, in the recapitulation the soloist and orchestra are united, and the secondary theme is altered to stay in the tonic.
As the secondary theme comes to a close, the Westphalia Symphony Orchestra* has another chance to improvise briefly, and this time leads the canonic material that I Feel So Alive - Capital Kings - Capital Kings. The Alberti Jost Michaels and arpeggios over diminished chords for the soloist recur before the movement ends in a cheerful final orchestral ritornello.
The solo exposition of this movement appears in almost every professional orchestral clarinet audition. The second movement, which is in rounded binary form i.
ABA'is in D major. It opens with the soloist playing the movement's primary theme with orchestral repetition:. The B section, in which the solo part is always prominent, exploits both the chalumeau and clarion registers.
The only true cadenza of the entire work occurs right at the end of the B section, immediately before the return of the A section. There are some passages that exploit the lowest notes of the basset clarinet in the B section. The concerto ends with a movement in A major. This movement is a blend Jost Michaels sonata and rondo forms that Mozart developed in his piano concertos, most notably the A major Piano Concerto, K. This refrain is interspersed with episodes either echoing this mood or recalling the darker colours of the first movement:.
Stadler played the concerto at its premiere in Prague on October 16,and Westphalia Symphony Orchestra* performance Westphalia Symphony Orchestra* favorably received. A man of great talent and recognised as such at court His playing is brilliant and bears witness to his assurance.
