Livestream: Soup Concert with Violin, Clarinet and Piano
Skittles for three in the company of Mozart.
Friday 7 May 2021 12.15Ends approximately 13.00
Mozart met the phenomenal clarinettist Anton Stadler and soon, his music was filled with the warm tones of the clarinet. Stadler was one of the most acclaimed musicians of his time and they likely spent time together outside of musical circles. Perhaps they also played skittles (Kegelstatt) together.
This lyrically beautiful trio was intended to be performed by Mozart’s student Franziska von Jacquin on piano, Anton on clarinet and Wolfgang Amadeus himself on viola. Here, concertmaster Patrik Swedrup of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra will exchange his violin for a viola and handle the solo section.
In the piece Rain Waves, American composer Joan Towers conveys the evocative, shifting intensity of rain. This music moves in dynamic waves, in which the notes can be interpreted as raindrops. The concert will begin with Milhaud’s understated suite, in which his interest in Brazilian and American pop music melds with French lightness.
