Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Clarinet Quintet in A, Stadler
Carl Maria von Weber: Rondo for Clarinet and Strings

The SPCO brings core chamber music repertoire to the historic Turf Club, a mainstay of the Twin Cities music scene, located in Saint Paul’s Midway neighborhood. In this intimate chamber ensemble program, the SPCO explores two essential masterworks for clarinet and strings. With Mozart’s late works featuring the clarinet and inspired by the virtuoso Anton Stadler, Mozart essentially gave birth to the soul of the clarinet. His Quintet for Clarinet and Strings is perhaps the finest example of this, and is followed by Carl Maria von Weber’s Rondo for Clarinet and Strings, a showpiece for the clarinet written 22 years later for the same chamber ensemble instrumentation as Mozart’s masterpiece.
