We open our 22-23 season with the spirit of virtuosity. Montgomery captures the energy of young virtuosos with Starburst, Mozart spotlights the dazzling range of the clarinet with the first concerto written for the instrument, and Brahms takes on his idol, Beethoven, with his hard-earned first symphony (often referred to as Beethoven’s Tenth).

Hailed for his “trademark brilliance, penetrating sound and rich character,” Avery Fisher Prize winner Anthony McGill is one of classical music’s most recognizable and brilliantly multifaceted figures. Currently serving as the principal clarinet of the New York Philharmonic — that orchestra’s first African-American principal player — McGill also maintains a dynamic international solo and chamber music career, including his performance alongside violinist Itzhak Perlman, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, and pianist Gabriela Montero at President Barack Obama’s inauguration.
