Reviews

Mitchell Lurie
Mitchell Lurie, former principal clarinet with the Pittsburgh and Chicago Symphonies under Fritz Reiner, taught at the University of Southern California for 50 years, and is possibly the best-known clarinetist in the world. The Brahms Sonatas were originally on Crystal LP S301, which was one of Crystalís best selling LPs. Richard Lesser, one of Lurieís prize students, was principal clarinet with the Israel Philharmonic for 35 years. This is the premiere recording of Daniel Kesnerís Dances. Jordan Charnofsky has performed guitar with the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra, in the World Festival of Sacred Music, numerous times at the Academy Awards celebrations, and for TV / film.
