Wednesday Music: Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto

Another Wednesday, another classical music video. What did you think of last week’s video? If you haven’t watched it, you should!

This week’s piece of music is also by Mozart. It’s his Clarinet Concerto in A Major, K. 622. Here’s a bit about it:

  • The relatively high Köchel number tells us that this is one of his final pieces. Indeed, Mozart wrote this in 1791, the same year he died.
  • It is his only concerto for the clarinet.
  • In my opinion, the Adagio (the slow second movement) is one of the most beautiful pieces of music written in the history of humankind.

If that final bullet point doesn’t make you watch this video… then nothing will. Enjoy! 🙂
