Sean Shepherd Quintet
The acerbic Prokofiev Quintet is programmed alongside a new quintet by outstanding contemporary composer Sean Shepherd, and the delightful Glinka Trio, a piece infused with Russian folk melody.
Showcasing wind players appearing at various concerts throughout our Bay Chamber Festival, clarinetist Alicia Lee‘s chamber music experience includes performances at the Lucerne Festival, the Spoleto Festivals of Italy and the US, Yellow Barn Music Festival, and had been in residence at Marlboro Music Festival for the past several summers. She is a founding member of DZ4, an innovative wind quintet that has been actively expanding the repertoire of their genre by commissioning and performing works by some of the most talented young composers of today.
Praised for his "teeming energy" and "precise control" by The New York Times and having "every note varnished to a high gloss" by the Boston Globe, New York-based bassoonist Adrian Morejon has established himself as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral musician.
