Rotterdams Philharmonisch Orkest – Lahav Shani conductor – Martin Fröst clarinet
Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra, KV 622 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Symphony no. 5, D 485 Franz Schubert
“I have an unruly personality and am easily irked by the system that governs the world of classical music. I want to feel moved and also move the audience. And then go back to Mozart. That is my kind of mix.” For Martin Fröst, playing Mozart does not mean falling in line. Far from it. Everything in his music calls for emancipation. The versatile musician always approaches a piece with a fresh mindset. Velvety, subtle tones, dexterity, musicality… Martin Fröst combines all the qualities needed for a profoundly captivating performance of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto; he will be accompanied by Lahav Shani and the Rotterdams Philharmonisch Orkest. After the concerto, the Israeli conductor and his orchestra offer you the very Mozartian Fifth Symphony by Schubert, a piece which reveals the exceptional maturity of a 19-year-old composer.
