Pre-Concert Chamber Performance
DateOct 21, 2021
VenueAtlanta Symphony Hall
Thursday at 6:45PM
Join us for our first pre-concert chamber performance of the 2021/22 season as we return to in-person performances.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Quintet for Clarinet and Strings, K. 581, was written in 1789 for the clarinetist Anton Stadler. A clarinet quintet is a work for one clarinet and a string quartet (two violins, a viola and a cello). Although originally written for basset clarinet, it is almost always played on a clarinet in A or B-flat. It was Mozart's only completed clarinet quintet, and is one of the earliest and best-known works written especially for the instrument. It remains exceptionally popular today due to its lyrical melodies, with the second movement the best known.
Our musicians will be performing on stage, but our audience will enjoy socially-distanced seating in the hall – not on stage as we have done in the past – due to Covid safety restrictions.
FREE for all ticket holders of the Delta Classical series performance this evening.
