Washington Square Music Festival will perform a free concert “Strings, Winds and Piano” featuring Clarinetists Stanley Drucker, formerly of the New York Philharmonic, and Naomi Drucker with the Washington Square Music Festival Chamber Ensemble.

Pieces performed will include Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Quintet for Clarinet and Strings, K. 581 written in 1789. A clarinet quintet is a work for one clarinet and a string quartet. From the release: “It was Mozart’s only completed clarinet quintet, and is one of the earliest and best-known works written especially for the instrument. It remains exceptionally popular today due to its lyrical melodies, with the second movement the best known.”
