Edwin -(and anyone else who has an opinion)

In your opinion, how would Stoltzman have done in the recent Philadelphia

Also, in your opinion, who are the better "musicians",
soloists/virtuosi/super stars or major symphony principals?

<<<I disagree. I believe Stoltzman has done more for clarinet and music in
general than a lot of "superstars" have by making it more mainstream and
increasing exposure.>>>

I would like to ask who you would consider more of a "superstar" of the
clarinet than Stoltzman. If superstar-dom means recognition from the
general public, whether or not based on actual musical accomplishments, I
can't think of any clarinetist who is more qualified for the title of
superstar than he is.
