Sobre Mozart, está todo dicho, a pesar de ser reiterativo. Profesor, maestro, genio, genio, genio.

She blows so beautifully and harmoniously. A marvellous combinations between lungs and fingers, complexly coordinated by the neuro-chemical synapses created during many years of training. I'm amazed and thrilled!

Who is listening to Mozart during the COVID lockdown?

This is the very concerto, that was played at my brother`s funeral. It brought me back to the days, that he and I played together more than six decades ago. We both loved the same music, which my parents and other siblings also liked. Now they are all dead and I am left with so many beautiful memories. This piece will always remind me of my childhood.

I am a 13 years, and I play the clarinet. I hope I someday can play this piece, and maybe half as good as she did. She’s so talented, and she makes it seem easy.

I am very elderly and have always loved Mozart. This lass with her clarinet is just heaven. During lock down I have been endeavouring to renew my acquaintance with the piano although it is sixty years since I last did so. Although I make many mistakes the piano has been my saviour.

Emocionante y conmovedor, el acompañamiento perfecto para las travesuras de mi hija de 1 año.

I am by no means a classical music expert and watching a creation such as this I am not only amazed at the genius which created it but the evolution of everything that made it possible from the moment someone figured out how to create those instruments from wood, metal, valves, and strings to create such sounds. Then the people who dedicated their lives to master these instruments and bring them all together to create the beautiful sound we hear is nothing short of genius and miraculous.

My late father was a Professor of Music and a clarinetist. I grew up hearing him practice this Concerto. So much so that I remember nearly every note of the first and second movements, and much of the third. This brings back many memories. (He studied it with Robert Marcellus, BTW. He would come home from lessons inspired beyond speech.) Ms. Árnadóttir plays it somewhat differently than Dad did - smoother than he - but her rendition is beautiful.

Mozart wrote this brilliant concerto for his friend, the virtuoso clarinetist, Anton Stadler. We can only imagine his thoughts when he first played it.

I was a very talented clarinet player when I was young (14 years old), I earned 1st chair in the state. Since then I lost the motivation to practice and by the time I was in college band I was mediocre at best. I haven’t played since but this brings me back to how fulfilling it was to create such a beautiful sound. I miss being a musician so much.

When my father was in the hospital being treated for terminal cancer, I took a selection of classical music for him to listen to. This concerto was his favorite. I always think of him when I hear it.

The whole concept of total peace, and I don't mean 'The machines of war for peace', may give some credence to these amazing activities that may ultimately redeem humanity.

I lost my husband of 63 years of marriage, Sept 2019 and this piece of music has always been my favorite and comforts me. Also my daughter played it when she was in high school. This was beautiful.

Dear Arngunnur Arnadottir, there are so many compliments and comments made for you by the time I write this one of mine that I failed to read them all. But I must do before I cannot. I am a 75 y. o. Khmer (Cambodian) man who has been listening to your lovely performance I can't remember when and always has enjoyed it every times. I am no musician, but I am a music lover.
Thank you so much for sharing this life beauty with me. I have owed you so much, thank again.

The performance by Miss Árnadóttir gives an overwhelmingly beautiful and masterful performance played by memory. The Clarinet Concerto is intense, engaging, triumphant and graceful as unique. Simply wonderful captivating musical treasure.
