Background:

Clarinetist Richard Stoltzman’s virtuosity, musicianship and sheer personal magnetism have made him one of today's most sought-after concert artists. As soloist with more than a hundred orchestras, as a captivating recitalist and chamber music performer, as an innovative jazz artist and appearances on nearly 50 recordings, Stoltzman has defied categorization, dazzling critics and audiences alike throughout many musical genres. Recent releases include Nielsen, Prokofiev and Lutoslawski with the Warsaw Philharmonic conducted by Lawrence Leighton Smith (BMG/RCA), the Skrowaczewski Concerto with the Saarbrucken Radio Orchestra, conducted by the composer (Albany), and the acclaimed recording of Hartke’s “Landscapes with Blues” with IRIS, conducted by Michael Stern (Naxos), a New York Times “Best of 2003”.
                                      
"His mastery of the clarinet and his impeccable musicianship are no secret by now, but one who has not heard him play for a time can easily forget how rich and fluid the instrument can sound from top to bottom of its range. If Mr. Stoltzman is not one of a kind, who might the others be?" - The New York Times
                                      
The University Symphony Orchestra, directed by Kimo Furumoto has been called “stellar…sounding rich, full and aggressive,” by Peter Lefevre — Orange County Register. Last spring, in addition to their season concerts, they performed with international opera star Deborah Voigt, and a variety of local arts groups. This spring they’ll also welcome to their stage the accomplished St. Petersburg String Quartet.
