Looking Ahead: Clyne’s music is featured in two major concert tours this season. DANCE is performed by cellist Inbal Segev and the Taki Alsop Conducting Fellowship alumni as part of a global concert series, involving orchestras across 10 different cities (with regional premieres in the UK, Canada, Spain, Austria, and Poland). In October, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Maxim Emelyanychev perform Stride during its nine-city US tour.
On January 5, clarinetist Martin Fröst, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and Jaap van Zeden give the world premiere of Clyne’s new clarinet concerto, Weathered.
