Featuring Steve Cohen , clarinet

March 28 at 7:30 pm

The HSO performs three of the most pivitol, historic works of the operatic, concerto,

and symphonic canon – the overture to the first great German opera, Weber’s Der

Freishutz, Mozart’s sublime final instrumental concerto, and Brahms’ Symphony No.

1 in c minor, a work 14 years in the making. Guest artist clarinetist Steve Cohen has

graced the stage for the past 35 seasons as Principal Clarinet of the Brevard Music

Center Festival Orchestral.


Cohen inspired awe with his easy command of the concerto's (Mozart) wide register

leaps, his fluent scales and arpeggios in the finale and the suave, silken statement of the landmark melody in the Adagio.

--New Orleans Times-Picayune.
