W. A. Mozart (1756-1791): Clarinet Concerto in A major, K. 622.
Second movement: Adagio
Composed in 1791, the last year of Mozart’s life, this work was premiered less then two months before the composer’s death and published posthumously.
The main theme of the second movement, Adagio, is characterized by an intensely expressive and intimate melody. It is included in the soundtrack of the movie Out of Africa, which has contributed to its popularity.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791): Der Vogelfänger bin ich ja (from The Magic Flute).
Der Vogelfänger bin ich ja (The birdcatcher am I) is the first of the two arias of Papageno in The Magic Flute.
In the first representation of this Singspiel (German opera with spoken sections) in Vienna just two months before the composer’s death, the character of Papageno was played by the very librettist, Emanuel Schikaneder.
