Mozart Quintet for clarinet and string quartet quatuor K. 581
A living legend, a musician with a rich and eclectic career and a key player in the major musical movements of the last fifty years, Michel Portal teams up with the young Van Kuijk Quartet, the leading lights of the new generation of chamber music performers. They will rise to the challenge of Ravel’s Quartet, which blends unbridled virtuosity with the composer’s trademark reserve. Michel Portal’s clarinet joins them for a major score by Mozart, a composer who understood the instrument and deployed it with unique skill. The Quintet, a brilliant piece full of warmth and serenity – and the first to combine a quartet with the clarinet – takes us to the very heart of the enigma that is Mozart.
