This concert has happened. Tickets are no longer available.
When asked “What’s your favorite instrument to hear in a classical music recital?” most people’s default response probably wouldn’t be “the clarinet.” That is, until they’ve heard the sweeping sounds of Swedish clarinetist Martin Fröst. This is a performer who truly transcends his instrument and makes music that simply feels alive. From his riveting on-stage presence (he’s been known to dress up like a bird in concert) to his inventive approach to programming, if anyone is going to convert you to the clarinet, it’s Fröst. For his PUC debut (and one of only two U.S. recitals this season), he’s joined by fellow Swede Henrik Måwe for a sumptuous spread of Brahms, Poulenc, and Vivaldi arrangements.
SPEAKING OF THE CLARINET...
PUC has a long history of presenting non-traditional instruments in recital, including banjos, mandolins, bagpipes, accordions, harpsichords, crumhorns, and even an Anglo-Saxon harp!

“Until you've heard Martin Fröst, you really haven't heard the clarinet”
