Timing, elegance, humour – qualities that make Mozart’s “simple” music perhaps the most difficult of all to play, qualities the Israeli-born Sharon Kam imbues into every note. Widely regarded as one of the leading solo clarinetists in the world today, Ms. Kam joins the Orchestra for two stunning staples of her repertoire. Programmed creatively with Rautavaara’s atmospheric Cantus Arcticus and Stravinsky’s fantastical Firebird Suite.
