Andrew Simon plays Mozart's Clarinet Concerto

Presented by Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra


7 June 2024

Principal Clarinet of the Hong Kong Philharmonic, Andrew Simon performs Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in honour of Her Majesty Queen Suthida Bajrasudhabimalalakshana.

The program will include Edward Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No.1. Composed in 1901, it is the first of five marches by Elgar bearing the title “Pomp and Circumstance”, taking their title from a speech in Act 3 of Shakespeare’s Othello. At its publication, the march was dedicated to Elgar’s close friend, English conductor Alfred E. Rodewald.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A major, K. 622. Mozart was the first composer to realize the expressive qualities of the clarinet. Mozart’s writing shows great sensitivity to the character and limitations of the instrument and the relationship of the solo part to the orchestra to allow for breathing and phrasing. It was his last instrumental work, and it survives only in an adaptation by its original publisher. The soloist is a true “buffa” character, dancing around the orchestra, and it is generally considered to be Mozart’s best wind concerto.

Gustav Holst: The Planets, Op. 32, is a is a seven-movement orchestral suite. Each movement of the suite takes you through an auditory journey and is named after a planet of the Solar System and its supposed astrological character. Holst began composing The Planets in 1914; his music centric spatial explorations may not be cosmic, but they are brilliant, dramatic, and picturesque enough to fit into almost anyone’s concert hall horoscope.
