Laid back and lyrical, the Clarinet Concerto is one of Mozart's most beloved pieces – and expertly showcased by our own Associate Principal Clarinet Francesco Celata.
For more music ahead of its time, it’s onto Schumann. Despite his generally fragile health, his Second Symphony remains defiantly optimistic – a triumph of spirit reflected in the finale itself.
