Catherine Hudgins, clarinet and William Hudgins, Solo Clarinetist in the Boston Symphony, clarinet soloists in performance of DANIEL CROZIER Concerto for Two Clarinets and Orchestra (World Premiere)

Winter Park, Florida USA

           This new Double Concerto was performed on 2/23 and 2/24/18 in Winter Park, FL as part of the Winter Park Annual Bach Festival.

          The piece as performed consists of two movements. The first starts out with a lively tempo, leads to a dance section, then features a cadenza, before returning to some material derived from the opening. The second movement, entitled Hymn, is very lyrical. The movement ends quietly. The composer hopes to add 1 or 2 more movements at a later date.

About the Soloists

William Hudgins - Solo Clarinetist in the Boston Symphony

                   William R. Hudgins was appointed principal clarinetist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra by Seiji Ozawa in 1994, occupying the Ann S.M. Banks chair, having joined the orchestra two years earlier. He has been heard as a soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra on numerous occasions, including performances of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, with which he made his BSO debut as concerto soloist in 1995, Copland’s Clarinet Concerto, Bruch’s Double Concerto for Clarinet and Viola, and Frank Martin’s Concerto for Seven Winds, Timpani, Percussion, and String Orchestra. As a member of the Boston Symphony Chamber Players, he can be heard on their latest CD, “Plain Song, Fantastic Dances,” in music of Gandolfi, Foss, and Golijov, as well as on their compact disc “Mozart Chamber Music for Winds and Strings” in Mozart’s Quintet for Clarinet and Strings, K.581, and on a Grammy-nominated Arabesque recording of Hindemith’s Quartet for Clarinet, Violin, Cello, and Piano. Recent performances outside of the Boston Symphony Orchestra include orchestral performances and recordings with the Saito Kinen Orchestra in Matsumoto, Japan, and the Mito Chamber Orchestra in Mito, Japan, both under the direction of Seiji Ozawa. Mr. Hudgins performed in the December 2010 Susan G. Komen “Concert for the Cure” breast cancer benefit concert under the direction of Sir Simon Rattle. Appearances at the Rockport Chamber Music Festival include performances of Wagner and Copland in the inaugural concert at the Shalin Liu Performance Center in June 2010. He is scheduled to perform the Copland Clarinet Concerto with Boston’s Discovery Ensemble at Sanders Theatre in November 2011.
