About the Music
Mozart Clarinet Quintet in A major
Berg Three Pieces from Lyric Suite
A program of juxtaposition from two of music’s most creative composers, writing in two styles more than a century apart.
First comes Mozart’s poignant Clarinet Quintet, written during a difficult and unhappy year for the composer, yet filled with sweet and warm music that brings comfort, fresh perspective, and hope — Mozart bringing order to his disordered life.
For Alban Berg, the process of musical creation was an intensely-driven search for innovative answers using old materials in new ways — to shake up the old order into newly disordered beauty. In his Lyric Suite, he creates solace and splendor in contrasting string voices, buzzing and interacting with hard-edged vitality and poetic grace.
In addition to the concert performances, each episode of In Focus includes behind-the-scenes interviews and features about the music and musicmaking.
