Mozart’s joyful Eine Kleine Nachtmusik is one of his most popular and best-loved works, full of memorable melodies. Written when Strauss was 83, his Duet Concertino fully embraces his late style of composition with its reduced orchestration and highly refined writing which pays homage to his beloved Mozart. Widmann brings his own twist to the Andante from Mendelssohn’s Clarinet and Piano Sonata, which he has arranged for Clarinet, String Orchestra, Harp and Celesta. Only one movement of the prodigious 14-year old Mendelssohn‘s String Symphony No. 10 has survived, marked by a tempestuous character, and a major role for the violas – split into 2 parts. The Prokofiev’s Quintet in G minor is a seldom heard gift full of the jazzy themes of the 20‘s, inspired by his forgotten circus ballet Trapèze.
