Ozge Guncan, Ilkay Ak

Abstract


This study aims to gather information about piano and clarinet in the Classical Period and to show the importance of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s piano and clarinet music styles in solo and chamber music works. Classical Era takes place in the music history in the second half of the 18th century as a period starting from 1750, which is accepted as J. S. Bach’s date of death to 1827, which was L. von Beethoven’s date of death. In this era, which lasted about 80 years, clarinet and piano played an important role in Mozart’s works. The study will explain clarinet and piano works of W. A. Mozart, who was a unique composer of the 18th century classical music and whose mastery has been unquestionable for ages, and discuss the style and characteristics of the era about the contributions he made both to that period and to the following periods. Mozart, who crammed more than 600 works into his short life, is a composer who has been an example for all generations and the music history. Starting from this point of view, the study will explain and exemplify the outlines related to solo and chamber musical repertoire of Mozart’s clarinet and piano music.

Keywords: Mozart, Piano, Clarinet, Classical Period, Solo, Chamber Music.
