|Wolfgang Amadé Mozart:||Concerto in A major for Clarinet and Orchestra, K. 622|
|Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky:||Symphony No. 4|
About This Performance
The concert begins with Composer of the Year Mason Bates’ Mothership, commissioned and premiered by the YouTube Symphony at the Sydney Opera House. Bates says this “fast-paced opener imagines the orchestra as a mothership that is 'docked' by several virtuosic soloists.” Mr. Rusinek performs Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto on the basset clarinet, marking the first time this work is heard in Pittsburgh on the original instrument for which it was composed. Then, immerse yourself in Tchaikovsky’s vibrant Symphony No. 4.
