The Virtuoso Clarinetist

David Shifrin and Friends

The dark, rich tone of the clarinet truly sings in the hands of master instrumentalist David Shifrin. He shares the stage with both colleagues and protégés in this broad program that highlights the range of clarinet chamber music repertoire – from the comical to the sublime.

Pre-Concert Composer Chat with Lowell Liebermann and Christopher Theofanidis at 6:30 PM in the Rose Studio, free for ticket holders.
