Clarinetist Pierre Génisson and Quartet 212, made up of musicians from the Metropolitan Opera, gather around the quintets of Mozart and Weber, related by Wolfi and Constanze's wedding.

Those two radiant scores, where the warm and voluptuous timbre of the clarinet melts in the brightness of the strings, frame their passionate dialogue in a sophisticated blend that the album's title, ‘How I met Mozart’, updates mischievously.

Born in 1986, Pierre Génisson is one of the best representatives of the French new generation of woodwind players. Winner of the prestigious Carl Nielsen International Competition, he won the 1st Prize and the Audience Prize of theInternational Competition Jacques Lancelot of Tokyo. He then made his first recording ‘Made in France’ with the pianist David Bismuth for Aparté label. Acclaimed by the press, it received in particular a Diapason d’Or and the 4 "ffff" of the magazine Télérama.
