About The Music

Under the direction of renowned French clarinettist and conductor Paul Meyer, Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A major, K622, is delivered with a delicate interplay between the soloist and the Ensemble, which gives rise to a performance that is all the more beautiful for its graceful sensitivity.

Omega’s Artistic Director, David Rowden is particularly excited about performing alongside Paul Meyer, long-time friend and mentor. Rowden says ‘This will certainly be a treat for fellow lovers of the clarinet’.

For the first time, Omega Ensemble will take the stage in an expanded Chamber Orchestra form with 23 musicians, to present this extravaganza of some of Mozart’s finest works.

Bassoonist Ben Hoadley brings Mozart’s earliest wind concerto to life, delivering the fresh and engaging character sketch with aplomb. Mozart's Clarinet concerto was the last instrumental piece written by this musical genius before his death in 1791, and was only premiered two months prior by Clarinet Virtuoso Anton Stadler. Mozart had originally penned this piece with for Stadler’s signature instrument the basset clarinet.  The celebration concludes with one of Mozart’s greatest works – his deeply personal Symphony in G minor.

Join Omega for this moving journey through Mozart’s most memorable musical moments.
