  1. Concerto in D for String Orchestra - Igor Stravinsky
  2. Concerto for clarinet and orchestra in A K 622 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  3. Concerto in E flat 'Dumbarton Oaks' - Igor Stravinsky
  4. Symphony No 40 in G minor K 550 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Flanked by two of Stravinsky’s most engaging American compositions – his Concerto in D for strings and Brandenburg-inspired ‘Dumbarton Oaks’ for chamber orchestra – sits one of Mozart’s greatest and latest achievements. Written less than two months before his early death, this pivotal work – in the sunny key of A major – contains everything you ever need to know about the clarinet: especially how, in Michael Collins’s hands, it can be made to sing! Three years earlier, Mozart had also produced his three final symphonies: this astonishing central one – in the profound key of G minor – capable of forever changing how we think of classical music.
