“How I Met Mozart”: New Album from Pierre Génisson and Quartet 212 out 26 May
Clarinetist Pierre Génisson’s new album features many elective affinities. Pierre Génisson and the Quartet 212, made up of musicians from the Met Opera, gather around the quintets of Mozart and Weber, related by Wolfi and Constance’s wedding. Those two radiant scores, where the warm and voluptuous timbre of the clarinet melts in the brightness of the strings, frame their passionate dialogue in a sophisticated blend that the album’s title, How I met Mozart, updates mischievously.
To celebrate the release, Pierre Génisson and Quartet 212 will perform a programme of Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in A, K. 581 and Clarinet Quintet in B flat, Op. 34 by Carl Maria von Weber at the Salle Gaveau in Paris on 13 June.
