    As a clarinetist, this concert has to have my favorite clarinet concerto performed by my favorite clarinetist. The overture has to be in the same vein and heighten expectations for the concerto. My favorite symphony works with the first half, and my favorite conductor and orchestra are fitting choices for the music.

    Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks
    Mariss Jansons, conductor
    Carl Maria von Weber, Overture to Oberon
    Carl Maria von Weber, Clarinet Concerto No. 2
    Jon Manasse, clarinet
    Intermission
    Franz Schubert, Symphony No. 9, "The Great"

    If this is a "dream concert" then it just about has to be No. 2, no?

    To be honest, I haven't listened to this pieces in their entirety, but I like the marching theme at the beginning of No.1 and the eerie ending to No.2 with the percussion whilst the cello plays a sustained D.
