The virtuosity, technique, imagination and communicative power of two-time Grammy Award winner Richard Stoltzman have revolutionized the world of clarinet playing. He is credited with bringing the clarinet to the forefront as a solo instrument, and remains one of the world’s most important clarinetists. He is joined by pianist David Deveau, who has appeared with major orchestras and in recital across the U.S. and abroad, and Sarah Shafer, a rapidly ascending soprano praised for her “luminous voice” and “intensely expressive interpretations,” (The New York Times). Their recital features Schubert’s “Shepherd on the Rock” and the Brahms Sonata No. 1 in F minor, Op. 120.
“Few musicians can turn a phrase as irresistably.”
