“First part of the concert featured the clarinetist Mihael Paar as a soloist in the Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in A-major K581. This 4-movement piece of profane attributes in a formation fast-slow-menuet with trio-fast (closing Theme with variations) was composed in 1789 and inspired by clarinetist Anton Stadler, the solo-clarinetist of the Vienna’s Court’s Kapelle.

Mihael Paar shows the features of his basset clarinet performance acquired by many European clarinetists, and these are – in addition to outstanding intonation, superb techinque, great dynamic range – compilance in the chamber texture.”
