Clarinet, Viola and Piano Trio

Clarinet, Viola and Piano Trio

Long before there was a candy named Skittles, there was a game named skittles.  It started in Europe as a lawn bowling game and still survives these days as a pub game in the United Kingdom and Ireland.  But legend has it, that Mozart was playing a game of skittles when he cooked up the Trio for Clarinet, Viola and Piano in E-flat major.  Musical experts say that probably wasn’t the case, but the story lives on.  And the nickname “Kegelstatt” even means “skittle alley” We’ll hear a performance of that work today on Midday Mozart on Classical WSMR 89.1 Sarasota, 103.9, Tampa.
