Loren Kitt on Mozart's Clarinet Concerto:
"In my opinion, Mozart's Clarinet Concerto is the most sublime of concertos for clarinet, if not for all wind instruments. It's one of Mozart's last works, along with the Requiem. The concerto has Mozart's wonderful singing melodies, as well as fun-loving fast sections. I find it a privilege and a joy to perform this beautiful work."
Alice Weinreb, NSO flute, on Loren Kitt:
"I'm delighted that our own principal clarinetist Loren Kitt will be the featured soloist in Mozart's Clarinet Concerto. His beautiful sound and musicianship combine to bring this lovely piece to life."
