Program Notes

Concerto for Clarinet

(1791)

Wolfgang A. Mozart, composer

Mozart composed his great Concerto for Clarinet during the last year of his life. Although he was in ill health and greatly in debt at this time, the Clarinet Concerto is one of his greatest masterpieces. This work, as well as his Clarinet Quintet, is a staple of the clarinet literature. The "Rondo" is the third movement of this concerto. This Clarinet Concerto was written for Anton Stadler, probably the greatest clarinetist of his time, and was completed just two months before Mozart’s untimely death in the year 1791.
