This week's free download is the third movement from Mozart's Clarinet Quintet in A, K581. It is performed by the Carducci Quartet with clarinettist Julian Bliss and recorded for Signum Records. 

This is Mozart's only completed clarinet quintet and was written for the clarinettist Anton Stadler, who Mozart also wrote his Clarinet Concerto for. It was written at the end of Mozart's life, in 1789.

This movement - the third - is made up of a minuet and two contrasting trios. At the time of writing, the clarinet was still quite a novel instrument, but Stadler convinced Mozart that it was worthy of attention beyond the orchestra. 

'They have a wonderfully cavernous sound', writes Bayan Northcott. 'The whole reading has a pleasing impulse, balance and bloom.'
