Richard Stoltzman's virtuosity, musicianship and sheer personal magnetism have made him one of the most sought-after concert artists. His unique style of playing has earned him an international reputation as clarinet soloist with more than a hundred orchestras, as a recitalist, chamber music performer, jazz artist and two-time Grammy award winning recording artist.
His son, Peter John Stoltzman, is currently head of the piano program at the University of Colorado Denver, and is a graduate of the Berklee School of Music, New England Conservatory and the University of Texas. An outstanding jazz pianist, he has toured Japan, performed at the Hollywood Bowl and Carnegie Hall and recorded with leading jazz artists of the day.
In this Bernstein Centennial year, father and son are touring together in a "Tribute to Bernstein at 100." For Music Mondays, they will talk about their life and careers, separately and together, and perform not only some Bernstein and jazz, but some classics as well.
