MOSTLY MOZART: BACH MEETS MOZART
Caroline Henbest’s viola soars in uplifting classics from the great masters.
Violist Caroline Henbest joins the ANAM Orchestra for a morning of beautiful string music by great composers written in their most youthful, and mature periods. Mozart’s supremely elegant Clarinet Concerto in A was one of his final works. It is a shining example of all he perfected in his lifetime. This arrangement for viola retains the melodic glory that has made the concerto so famous. While Mozart’s work champions the solo instrument, Bach’s early cantata brings together a full ensemble of voices – in this case, the delightful combination of four violas and continuo. Exuding a similar mood is Carl Nielsen’s Suite for Strings, a great work of happiness, sadness, hope and resignation from his first opus.
