Last night BSO ticket holders were treated to a wonderful performance of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A (K.622) featuring friend and fellow church-member Bill Hudgins.
I’ll admit to being a little nervous for Bill, but when the music started and the audience was transported into Mozart’s wonderful realm of melancholy and exultation through the performance of Bill and the BSO orchestra, every other thought and feeling was banished. Bill’s performance was so tasteful, sensitive, and nuanced that I’m sure Mozart would have been thrilled. Bravo, Bill!
The reception after the concert was lovely – I particularly enjoyed meeting Bill’s father.
Here’s a portion of the Concerto also with the BSO and a pretty good clarinetist of years past:
