Rocio Bolanos performs Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, a work of consistently melancholic beauty, not least in its elegiac slow movement. There is no denying the work is among the very finest of concerti ever written for the instrument. As a young boy, Mendelssohn wrote two concertos for violin, both of them immensely accomplished. Yet, neither anticipated the breathtaking originality of his Violin Concerto in E minor, written very much later in 1844, a workthat firmly rebuts the idea that the precocious composer lost most ofhis inspiration after the age of 20. Again, each of tonight’s concerti is complemented by a Mozart symphony, including the Paris symphony, so named as the composer was staying in the French capital at the time he wrote it.
