Featuring two works by Mozart โ€“ both written in 1791, the last year of his tragically short life โ€“ this concert opens with the spirited overture to ๐˜“๐˜ข ๐˜Š๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ป๐˜ข ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช ๐˜›๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฐ, followed by the only concerto the prolific composer ever wrote for the clarinet and one of the most important in the instrumentโ€™s repertoire โ€“ the Clarinet Concerto in A. This exquisite work will be performed by the incredible Israeli clarinettist Gilad Harel, who is celebrated not just as a master interpreter of classical music, but also a leading advocate of contemporary and Jewish music. Together with Hong Kong Sinfonietta under the baton of Jason Lai, he will also showcase his stunning musicality and virtuosity in ๐˜’๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ป๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜š๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ, caprice on traditional tunes for clarinet and orchestra. The concert will conclude with Dvoล™รกkโ€™s exuberant Symphony No 8, in celebration of the 180th anniversary of the great Czech composerโ€™s birth.
