Shtrykov-Tanaka Duo Presents "Epilogues"

Program to include works written for the clarinet at the end of composers' lives, including the Sonata for Clarinet and Piano by Francis Poulenc and Sonatas for Clarinet and Piano by Johannes Brahms.

Comprised of two sensationally gifted and acclaimed virtuosi - clarinetist Maksim Shtrykov [pronounced: sh-TRY-koff] and pianist Misuzu Tanaka - the Shtrykov-Tanaka Duo has been heard throughout the U.S., garnering an impressive record of instant re-engagements. Clarinet and piano duos are still rare gems on the modern concert stage despite the immense repertoire. With its innovative programming, master classes, and recitals, the Duo makes it their mission to transform the superb instrumental combination from a rare occurrence to a welcomed guest in concert series across the globe.
