MOZART PERFORMED BY JASON SHAFER

Apr 9, 2017

Principal Clarinetist Jason Shafer makes his debut as soloist performing Mozart's Clarinet Concerto. This work provides a showcase for the talents of Shafer, who joined the Symphony at the beginning of the 2013/14 season. One of Mozart's last works, it highlights the interplay between the orchestra and the clarinet soloist. The program concludes with Dukas's La Péri and Rimsky Korsakov's Scheherazade. This 1888 work is a musical adaptation of "A Thousand and One Nights" (or The Arabian Nights).
