Is there anything that makes working at a desk more tolerable than sipping tea and listening to beautiful music? I’m rediscovering the National Arts Centre Orchestra’s free, streaming catalogue of recordings. Visit nacmusicbox.ca to sample. A personal favourite is the second movement of Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in A major “Stadler”, K. 581, played here by NACO’s Kimball Sykes and the NAC Orchestra. You can even browse concert notes, if you’re looking to get a deeper understanding of the music and where it came from. Happy discovering!
