Hear unique explorations of a classic Baroque form and clarinet fireworks. The fugue (imitation of a theme in simultaneously sounding melodic lines) enjoyed its heyday in the Baroque era, but Mozart’s deeply expressive Adagio and Fugue in C Minor took it to new heights, as did Mendelssohn in the finale of his Mozart-inspired Sinfonia No. 8. Jörg Widmann’s stunningly original Versuch über die Fugehonors and deconstructs the form—all at once! Widmann also plays high-speed runs, dizzying lines, and more in Weber’s Clarinet Quintet, a delightful mini-concerto.
