Performed at the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse on Saturday, Aug 6, 2016.

 

“A kinetic player with a vivid interpretive imagination and a sharply focused, warm tone” (New York Times), Swedish clarinetist Martin Fröst’s agile, virtuosic playing has often drawn comparisons to a dancer. For this sparkling program, he indulges this reputation with his “perfectly matched compatriot” Roland Pöntinen (BBC Music Magazine) in a buoyant evening of rustic merriment.
