WINTER SOLSTICE SUNSET BRINGS OUT NEW MOZART RECORDING
Tonight at 12:44 AM Hawaiian time, we will experience the Winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere. It will be the official start of winter. At the same time, our friends south of the equator will usher their summer.
As I was watching the last sunset before the solstice this evening, sitting on the Rainbow Shower lanai, I was moved to record a new (gentler) rendition of Mozart’s Clarinet concerto to commemorate the Solstice.
So I went inside and started doing it…
This piece came to me originally in England in October 2010 disguised as a violin concerto. I had to wait till Elizabeth and I got back home before being able to identify it as a clarinet concerto.
I have since renamed it Lunar Concerto because of its serenity and celestial qualities (like “music of the spheres”).
MOZART CLARINET CONCERTO: MUSIC FOR WINTER SOLSTICE 2016
Here it is now, my new recording… as I hear this celestial music, which is slightly different from the way Mozart wrote it in the last year of his life – 1791.
Mozart Clarinet Concerto: Music for Winter Solstice 2016 – recorded by Bob Altzar Djurdjevic on Dec 20, 2016 on a Clavinova at the Rainbow Shower in Maui, Hawaii.
