Let’s Dance

Mozart loved to dance, and it is hard not to find a dance theme in his music. So it is appropriate that Lutoslawksi’s Dance Preludes figures as an introduction to the Mozart Piano Concerto No. 17 in G major, which follows. Principal Clarinet Scott Andrews, who solos in the Lutoslawski, shares insights into the work in this week’s video blog.

Almost Dancing

Scott Andrews rehearsed the rocking, jaunty, bluesy, jazzy Lutoslawski Dance Preludes with David Robertson and the orchestra on Thursday afternoon. Scott told me it’s music that feels like the dance is just about to happen–a perfect concert opening, especially with Mozart Piano Concerto No. 17 in G major, played by Richard Goode, right after.
