Description

How often do we hear a clarinet trio? That is exactly what “Trio di Clarone” is—Italian for “Trio of clarinets.” It is even rarer to hear one composed of such great players. These brilliant musicians specifically formed this Trio to introduce us to the beauty of the clarinet and basset horn repertoire, beginning especially with Mozart, who loved these relatively new instruments. Leading the Trio is Sabine Meyer; she is a star in Europe, but her last appearance in New York as a solo artist was at 92Y in 2006 for a performance of Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet with the Tokyo String Quartet. *

About the Ticket Supplier: 92nd Street Y

“The quintessential New York institution” —New York Times

The 92nd Street Y is about people. The people of New York City and the surrounding area. The people of the United States and of the world. It’s about people who entertain and challenge, inform and educate. It’s about people who learn and discover, observe and participate.

The 92nd Street Y operates in the context of a history that spans over 130 years. Founded in 1874 as the Young Men’s Hebrew Association where Jewish men could find harmony and good fellowship, the 92nd Street Y today has evolved into a world-renowned community and cultural center, an organization of exhilarating vitality and remarkable diversity, a proudly Jewish institution that reaches out to people of every race, ethnicity, religion, age and economic class.

At once a lecture hall, a performance space, a school, a health center and a community organization, the Y remains focused on its mission of enriching the lives of the people who pass through its doors – women and men, young families and senior citizens, accomplished artists and aspiring beginners, master instructors and enthusiastic students, world leaders and concerned citizens.
