Written just weeks before its composer’s death, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A shows the Austrian composer at the peak of his abilities. Ergodos Musicians, together with the English clarinettist Jonathan Sage, will stage a unique performance of this celebrated work at Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin on 7 June 2013.
Mozart’s concerto will be paired with a new composition for clarinet and chamber orchestra by the Irish composer Garrett Sholdice. Sage, who has created his own edition of Mozart’s work, will be performing on the unusual basset clarinet, the instrument for which the concerto was originally written, favoured by it’s first performer Anton Stadler for it’s rich, extended lower range.
Ergodos Musicians — the group in its largest ever manifestation here with seventeen players — is an all-star cast of Ireland’s finest string and wind players, led by the violinist Clíodhna Ryan.
