Unique instruments! Enchanting dances! CSO clarinetist J. Lawrie Bloom performs Mozart’s last orchestral work, the Clarinet Concerto. Written for the rare (even today!) basset clarinet, it is considered the greatest in the repertoire. Film composer Luis Bacalov’s Misa Tango sets the classic mass to the rhythms of the Argentinian Tango and features the bandoneon accordion. Two lush and lovely Tchaikovsky ballet suite­s will fill everyone with fairy tales.


“Superb, evocative,
and so very powerful.”
