Pierre Génisson: How I Met Mozart




Clarinetist Pierre Génisson's new album features many elective affinities. Pierre Génisson and the Quartet 212, made up of musicians from the Met Opera, gather around the quintets of Mozart and Weber, related by Wolfi and Constance's wedding. Those two radiant scores, where the warm and voluptuous timbre of the clarinet melts in the brightness of the strings, frame their passionate dialogue in a sophisticated blend that the album's title, How I met Mozart, updates mischievously.
