Virtuosi Tasmania - Mozart Clarinet Quintet and Danzi's Quartet
Mozart's beautiful Clarinet Quintet and Danzi's delightful Quartet for Bassoon and Strings will be performed by virtuosi musicians from the TSO when Virtuosi Tasmania returns with it's fourth offering for the 2014 season.
Mozart's Clarinet Quintet is always popular, for good reason, it's gorgeous! Franz Danzi, a near contemporary of Beethoven, is known today for his masterful compositions for winds, notably his nine woodwind quintets. This Quartet for Bassoon and Strings, composed in the high classical style, is a fine example of Danzi's mastery.
John Panckridge, bassoon, Miranda Carson, Victoria Bihun, violins, Jane Tallon, cello, Anna Roach, viola and Chris Waller, clarinet..
