18. Mai 2022, 16:00-18:00
Kammermusiksaal B0403 1010 Wien, Singerstrasse 26 (Eingang: Seilerstätte 8)

 

My lecture-recital will be an overview of notable Austrian clarinet history through the presentation and performance of landmark works by Austrian composers. From the Classical era to today, Austria is known for its significant contributions to the clarinet community, including performers and compositions. My lecture will include a PowerPoint presentation discussing important Austrian clarinetists, clarinet works, and characteristics of the Austrian national school of clarinet playing. I will also be performing selected works from the presentation to demonstrate the musical traits of Austrian clarinet compositions throughout its history. The goal of this lecture-recital is to showcase the rich clarinet history in Austria while examining its place in the international clarinet community.
