Falla - El amor brujo
Mozart - Clarinet Concerto in A
Beethoven - Symphony No.7
Carlos Miguel Prieto
Sergio Castelló López, clarinet
The Hallé’s Principal Clarinet Sergio Castelló López is soloist in Mozart’s serene concerto. It was written for Anton Stadler, hugely respected despite Mozart’s nickname for him: ‘old redcurrant face’. The concerto was tailored to exploit Stadler’s virtuosity, celebrated singing tone and love of the instrument’s rich lower register.
Carlos Miguel Prieto brings his panache to bear on Beethoven’s exhilarating Seventh Symphony, a work described by Wagner as ‘the apotheosis of the dance’. The concert opens with Falla’s remarkably beautiful El amor brujo.
