Mozart was the first composer to truly explore the clarinet’s potential. This new disc brings together his two major works for the instrument, the concerto and the quintet. Throughout, the playing has a particularly resonant lower register. Sympathetic accompaniment is provided by the Vertavo Quartet and the Amsterdam Sinfonietta produces a richly sonorous orchestral sound.
