Mozart Brings Out The Beautiful Sound Of The Clarinet

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and this Thanksgiving week and hope you will enjoy this pleasant sunny piece by Mozart to close out the Tales Classical Music Weekend.

W.A. Mozart [1756-1791]
While the great Mozart was a child prodigy in piano and violin, he certainly could bring out the best of some of the other instruments in his compositions.  This was certainly true with the clarinet.  This is shown [heard] in Mozart's clarinet quintet in A Major.  Tell me you can listen to this wonderful piece and not love the clarinet.  Along with his clarinet concerto, Mozart's quintet for clarinet and strings is the most influential music for me having such a love for the clarinet [along with the piano, my two favorite instruments].

What a genius, what a gift from God was Mozart. 

Please turn up the sound and enjoy this wonderful peaceful chamber music piece by Mozart on this Sunday after Thanksgiving.
