Looking for something new to listen to during the pandemic? The Kansas City Symphony has posted a wonderful recording of Richard Danielpour’s Concerto for Clarinet (from the mountaintop) with soloist Anthony McGill. McGill is currently Principle Clarinet with the New York Philharmonic.
Scroll down to “Voices of Justice” to hear an interview with McGill, followed by the performance.
This work joins several that were written for McGill by Bill Holab Music composers, including Joel Puckett’s Concerto Duo, a double concerto for flute, clarinet and orchestra which was written for McGill to perform with his brother DeMarre, Principal Flute of the Seattle Symphony.
