Mozart

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

 

It's a nice story... if only it were true. Mozart's Clarinet Trio has a great nickname: The "Kegelstatt" Trio, or the "Bowling Alley" Trio. Legend has it that Mozart wrote the piece while he was playing nine-pins. Well, Fred Child will be bursting that bubble. The music is still worthwhile, of course. From Seattle, we have a concert performance by Frank Kowalsky, Ulrich Eichenauer, and Shai Wosner.
