The New York Times has praised clarinetist Anthony McGill for “his trademark brilliance, penetrating sound and rich character”; McGill’s musical charisma is a perfect match for Weber’s First Clarinet Concerto, which showcases the full range of the instrument. After intermission enjoy another gem for clarinet, the brief Rhapsody by Debussy — then listen for Debussy’s influence on an absolute icon: Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, a dramatic fairytale featuring a heroic prince, an evil sorcerer, and a powerful fire spirit. This fresh and thrilling concert opens with a world premiere commission by rising star composer Wang Jie.

Program:
Wang Jie, Flying On the Scaly Backs of Our Mountains (world premiere commission)
Carl Maria von Weber, Clarinet Concerto No. 1 in F Minor, Op. 73

Claude Debussy, Première Rhapsodie for clarinet and orchestra
Igor Stravinsky, Firebird Suite (1919)
