Mozart Adagio from Clarinet Concerto

Okay, here is the one where I add stuff, especially in the return of the main theme, second part. I use some of the provocative yet fitting ornamentation suggested by Stoltzman in his recording of the piece. Unfortunately, the audio quality sucks. I'm looking for a better copy. But you get the gist.

    Very elegant and evocative performance; perfect musical architecture, an arch through time, which is the ultimate definition of music. My clip was complete.

    Hi David. Very nice. The clip seems to stop a little before the end of the music?

    I was interested to hear you continuing the phrase up at 3:20, rather than going down an octave at the very end. I played the concerto in 2006 and decided this was the best solution to the lack of the basset clarinet. But I was a bit nervous doing it, since I'd never heard any recording take that approach.

    By the way, you said you used Stolzmann's ornaments, but I didn't hear any, unless they're in the missing bars at the end??

      Darn. I though the clip was complete. Will check back with answer.

    Beautiful piece especially when performed with balance of emotion and precision as you did. Love the mood after the cadenza especially! First music I've listened to today. What a great way to start the day.
