MORE ABOUT THE MUSIC

Weber Clarinet Concerto No. 1
“I’m so excited to perform this concerto. It’s a passionate journey with a protagonist who is at first sorrowful and suffering; then the epitome of innocence and beauty; and finally the joker, playful and exciting.” –Elias Rodriguez, clarinet

Mahler Symphony No. 7
“Mahler’s writing is extremely emotive, with a complexity of character unlike any other composer. Strings have Beethoven and Mozart, but brass and winds have Mahler!” –Chris Moran, trumpet
