In an evening packed full of infectious melodies and toe-tapping rhythms, the sensational clarinettist Martin Fröst performs Copland’s jazz-influenced Clarinet Concerto, an exciting selection of Eastern European-inspired dances, and three thrillingly virtuosic arrangements of traditional Klezmer dances by his brother, Göran.
