Mozart: Clarinet Concerto K 622, Quintet K 452
Vladimir and Dimitri Ashkenazy – an exceptional father-son relationship. Two exceptionally beautifully pieces, performed by to exceptional musicians – that is behind this new paladino release.
“I consider it to be the best [thing] that I have written in my life”, Mozart informed his father on 19 April 1784 after the premiere of his E Flat Major Quintet. An audience will probably never have such a definite opinion. Walter Kläy, as an example, has written the following about the clarinet concerto: "It is amongst the most beautiful music that Mozart composed and represents a degree of perfection that cannot be understood analytically."
