Directed and performed by dazzling virtuoso clarinettist Michael Collins, the centrepiece of this concert will be a performance of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto. Composed in 1791, it remains one of his most enduringly popular pieces and demonstrates Mozart’s obvious love of the clarinet. Schubert’s perfectly conceived 5th Symphony showcases his infatuation with Mozart and represents something of a personal tribute to his idol.
