In truth, the evening is mainly dedicated to the works of Schumann and Kurtág - to mark the occasion of the Hungarian composer's 88th birthday - with the addition of a trio said to have been written by Mozart while playing skittles (hence the nickname Kegelstatt, bowling alley), and a 1993 composition by Widmann that has now become a staple of the clarinet repertoire. The interesting feature that connects the bulk of the works in the programme is the unusual combination of instruments. Before Mozart, no one had written a chamber piece for a trio of clarinet, piano and viola, though it is also true that the clarinet was still a relatively new invention at that time. Schumann later chose the same instrumentation in one of the works to be heard here, as did György Kurtág in his homage to Schumann.
