When: Mon., Feb. 5, 7:30 p.m.
Remembrance is dedicated to the memory of clarinetist and new music advocate, Laura Flax (1951-2017). A noted performer and a trailblazer for women in classical music, the New York based artist was the sister of longtime SOLI supporter Freda Flax. Legendary composer Shulamit Ran, a close friend of the late clarinetist, will join us for this memorial concert to present her new work for solo clarinet in honor of Ms. Flax, performed by SOLI founder Stephanie Key. Also on the program is Ran’s recent work, Birkat Haderekh (Blessing for the Road), which was premiered by Ms. Flax in 2015.
