Two-time Grammy Award-winning clarinetist Richard Stoltzman is known as a captivating recitalist, chamber musician, and jazz performer, as well as a prolific recording artist. He gave the first clarinet recitals in the histories of both the Hollywood Bowl and Carnegie Hall and has performed or recorded with numerous major symphonies, at international jazz festivals and with such jazz and pop greats as the Canadian Brass, Chick Corea, Keith Jarrett, Wayne Shorter, and Mel Tormé.

Richard Stoltzman with jazz pianist son Peter John will present a delightful mixture of classical and jazz with works by Debussy, Bernstein, Ellington, Monk and Gershwin.

“The listener was struck – awestruck, even – by Stoltzman’s expressive range, the wide array of musical colors he brings to the music, the varied sounds: seductive, biting, poetic, witty, beautiful, ugly. And when he plays softly, it is a thrilling softness, an intense quietude, a breathtaking diminuendo.”— LOS ANGELES TIMES
