Would anyone know the name of what was playing at about 7:50 PM tonight (Thursday)? It was very, very beautiful and I was able to catch the name, "Modal" (sp?)...

Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A is what helps me fight the cold weather on the way to class in the winter. I think because I had played it throughout my younger years, I have been able to appreciate pieces using it more.

Dude, the clarinet rocks! Espeically Weber Conertos 1&2. Don't forget Motzart's and Spohr's concertos as well.

The clarinet is a wonderful instrument to listen to. I first became aware of it by listening to the big bands of the '40s however as time went on, I grew to appreciate it as the great classical instrument that it truly is.
