Anthony McGill & Anna Polonsky – March 28, 2020

Clarinetist Anthony McGill is one of classical music’s most recognizable and brilliantly multifaceted figures. He serves as the principal clarinet of the New York Philharmonic — that orchestra’s first African-American principal player — and maintains a dynamic international solo and chamber music career.

Anna Polonsky made her solo piano debut at the age of seven at the Special Central Music School in Moscow, Russia, and emigrated to the United States in 1990. She is a recipient of a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship and the Andrew Wolf Chamber Music Award.

“McGill showed a whimsical, rhapsodic wit, and was able to paint in numerous hues, evoking both intimacy and distance.” – New York Classical Review

“Pianist Anna Polonsky was delicate of touch but strong of character. Hers was a virtually flawless performance, with just the right sense of melodic flow and balanced grace. “– The New York Sun
