Top musicians join Essex Chamber Music Players

World-renowned clarinetist Richard Stoltzman and virtuoso violinist Andrew Kohji Taylor will join the Essex Chamber Music Players to present the world premiere of “Streets of New York” by William Thomas McKinley of Reading.

The performance will be May 19 at 2 p.m. in the Hartleb Technology Center on the Haverhill campus of Northern Essex Community College, 100 Elliott St. Tickets are $15 for general admission, $10 for senior citizens and $5 for students. Admission is free for NECC students with a college identification.

The program’s 10 movements have descriptive titles, such as “Flights of Fancy” and “Hot Nights of Dancing.” Stoltzman, a Winchester resident, is a two-time Grammy Award-winning clarinetist.

“His virtuosity, technique, imagination and communicative power have revolutionized the world of clarinet playing, opening up possibilities for the instrument that no one could have predicted,” said flutist Michael Finegold, ECMP artistic director and an Andover resident.

“Andrew Kohji Taylor is expanding an international reputation by captivating audiences with probing musical insight, luminous tone, expressive phrasing and technical mastery,” Finegold said.

Taylor lives in Brookline. Stoltzman, McKinley, and Finegold were in the same Yale School of Music graduate class. Taylor is a Yale School of Music graduate, as well. McKinley dedicated “Streets of New York” to ECMP and the performers, who will include accomplished cellist Emmanuel Feldman of Newton.

The program will also feature “Duo for Flute and Clarinet” by Carl Vollrath, “Concerto a Tré for Clarinet, Violin, and Cello” by Ingolf Dahl, and the “Passacaglia” by Johan Halvorsen.

A question and answer period will follow. For more info, visit www.ecmp.org or contact Michael Finegold at ecmp314@comcast.net.
