Comprised of four musical friends, the University of Utah Clarinet Quartet is a premiere chamber group with the best graduate and undergraduate clarinetists from the University of Utah School of Music. They recently won 3rd place in the First Annual Utah Chamber Music Competition, performed at the subsequent winners’ concert, and performed in a master class for Donald Oehler at Utah’s Clarinet Festival.  In a couple months they’ll perform at ClarinetFest in Lincoln, Nebraska but until then they’re here to share with us music from Latin America and Italy. Each of the talented performers chats with host Judith Tourney about experiences in the world of clarinet, musical friendships, and ClarinetFest!  Performers: Henry Caceres (Bb and Eb Clarinet), Nick Morandi (Bass Clarinet), Kattiusca Marin (Bb Clarinet), Milagra McGee (Bb Clarinet)  Repertoire: Navidad Negra – Jose Barros Arr. Hernan Dario Rodriquez; Four for Four – Jorge Montilla; Histoire du Tango for Clarinet Quartet – Àstor Piazzola; Largo al Factorum from the Barber of Seville – Gioacchino Rossini; Tico-Tico for Clarinet Quartet – Zequinha de Abreu Arr.
