  • From Russia - Clarinet Concerto performance and recording

     In June of 2009, cellist Dmitry Kouzov and conductor Vladimir Lande gave the premiere of my Cello Concerto – a piece they commissioned – in the august surroundings of St Petersburg’s Belozersky-Belozelsky Palace, with the St. Petersburg Symphony. It was certainly a memorable trip as we recorded the piece in the Melodiya Studios that week as well. For this trip, we were to record my Clarinet Concerto – scored for clarinet and string orchestra – and it was to receive it’s Russian premiere at perhaps the most famous concert hall in the country, the famed Large Hall of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, also called Shostakovich Hall.

  • St. Petersburg performance and recording of the Clarinet Concerto

    Clarinettist Alexander Fiterstein, along with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic led by conductor Vladimir Lande, performed the Clarinet Concerto on November 23rd in the Large Hall of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic to a crowd of 2200. Over the next two days, the same forces recorded the work in the famed Melodiya Studios in St. Petersburg. The work will be coupled with the Cello Concerto - featuring cellist Dmitry Kouzov - on a future CD release. Stay tuned for more details.
