Last Saturday, Lauri Sallinen, accomplished clarinetist completing his year at the Manhattan School of Music, gave an excellent perfomance at a concert held at the Salmagundi Club. He was accompanied by Bradley Burgess, also from the MSM, on piano. The audience enjoyed the well-selected program, consisting of Carl Maria von Weber’s Gran Duo in three movements, Alban Berg’s  4 stucke – very modern sounding, eerily haunting tunes; and Johannes Brahms’ Sonata No. 1 for clarinet and piano, played with nuanced emotion and impeccable precision.

A lovely, refreshing stop on a beautiful spring afternoon in the city!
