National Philharmonic: The Artistry of Richard Stoltzman

Richard Stoltzman, clarinet
Piotr Gajewski, conductor
Clarinetist Richard Stoltzman, described by The Washington Post as an “artist of indescribable genius,” brings his unparalleled talent to Mozart’s only concerto for clarinet, written at the peak of his compositional abilities—just weeks before the prodigious composer’s death. Stoltzman is equally at home playing Copland’s jazzy Clarinet Concerto, commissioned by the great band leader and clarinetist Benny Goodman.
