About This Performance

This concert is part of the Laurie Wagman Century Series.

Brothers Anthony and Demarre McGill have achieved a phenomenal level of success in the classical music world. The only siblings ever to win the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, Anthony was appointed the principal clarinetist of the New York Philharmonic, and Demarre is the principal flutist of the Seattle Symphony. The “elegant, inquisitive” (The New Yorker) Aizuri Quartet joins these two outstanding wind musicians for a program that ranges from Amy Beach’s Native American-inspired Theme and Variations to Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s masterful, Dvořák-inspired Quintet and the world premiere of a new sextet by David Serkin Ludwig.

Beach: Theme and Variations, Op. 80
Serkin Ludwig: Organistra  World Premiere/PCMS Commission
Beecher: Song in Mistranslation
Coleridge-Taylor: Clarinet Quintet in F-Sharp Minor, Op. 10
