Every performer wants to get all the notes in place just so. They go to school for years and practice every day of their life trying to make it all sound perfect, and easy. When it comes to Mozart, players notch that motivation up and reach for a special level of expression. This week, we join soloist Franklin Cohen and the Cleveland Orchestra as they perform a clarinet playerís greatest treasure, Mozartís Clarinet Concerto.
