One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain. ~Bob Marley
In my last post from the foothills of the Pyrenees in the south of France, I wrote about the richness of learning when mixing youth and experience in a musical performance (When youth meets experience, both win).
As someone who appreciates music but is somewhat technically challenged, it took me longer than expected to download and format a clip of the Mozart Clarinet Quintet played at the festival edited. And then I realized the 1st movement was too long to post here on my WordPress blog, so some editing was required. But alas, success (not the best quality picture but I think you will enjoy hearing a bit of this masterpiece).
The location is an old Medieval church in the village of Limoux in the south of France and the musicians are a mixture of very young (14 years old), a professor of Viola in Italy and a professional orchestra clarinetist.
Enjoy. Opening two minutes of the 1st Movement of Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet.
