A large measure of Mozart’s increasing fascination with
the clarinet from the later 1780s was due to his interaction
with one of the cutting-edge virtuosi of the day, Anton
Stadler, for whom both of the works on this CD were
composed as well as the Clarinet Concerto, K. 662. Both
works are played here by Australian virtuoso, Owen Watkins
on reproductions of period clarinets, including a basset
instrument, with extended lower range, for the Clarinet
Quintet in A major, K. 581.
