Masterworks come in all shapes and sizes: they have been composed for a variety of combinations of instruments in all eras, including our own. This program features timeless pieces ranging from Mozart’s day, when the clarinet was just becoming a solo instrument, to the late 20th century, when works such as this program’s effervescent Micro-concerto by Steve Mackey offer an astounding variety of percussion instruments. Each inhabiting a distinct sound world, this program’s four works reveal an endless landscape of musical possibilities.
