Happy Hour with Principal Clarinet Pavel Vinnitsky

How are our musicians spending the quarantine since we can’t perform for you onstage? Principal clarinetist Pavel Vinnitsky, his wife, pianist/composer wife Anna, and their son are home balancing distance learning, teaching, and their current creative project: creating and rehearsing a set of new compositions and arrangements for clarinet and piano.

Here is your chance to have a glimpse into their home, as they explore new ways to produce art. What are the burning questions you’ve always had about the clarinet? Composing? Life as a musician? Here is your chance! So pour yourself a cocktail of choice and join the conversation on Tuesday May 19th at 4:30pm for our next Happy Hour!

Here’s to one of the greatest musical mothers ever! Clara Wieck Schumann would have been 200 years old this year. This working mother of 8 children was one of the most famous pianists of her generation with a 60+ year performing career, a composer, editor and champion of her husband Robert’s collected works, and a celebrated teacher.

Included is a playlist of my next recital project: Three Romances for Violin & Piano, op. 22 followed by Clara Schumann's most popular piece of chamber music today: the Piano Trio in g minor, op. 17 and finally, a piano concerto she composed as a teenager
