Mozart's Clarinet Concerto

Of all Mozart's concertos for wind instruments, his clarinet concerto is arguably the finest. Gorgeous melodies, achingly beautiful harmonies. It's a perfect showpiece for what the instrument can do. Martin Frost plays Mozart's masterpiece, his one and only concerto for the clarinet. Plus, the harrowing story of how a near-fatal collision with a train taught Frost how to put work and rest into perspective.
