 ClarFest 1980
Author: DaveF

The one and only time I was able to attend the annual ClarinetFest dates way back to 1980 in Denver, as I was with the U. of Illinois clarinet choir performing there with Howard Klug and Harvey Hermann. Some great memories, Stockhausen was there, and we all watched in stunned amazement when Suzanne Stephens performed (played and danced simultaneously, in costume) his "Harlequin". We all concluded we'd never attempt that ourselves!
The reason I bring this up is that I recall to this day an incredible performance of Weber's Grand Duo Concertante by a well known clarinetist.......but I just can't recall who it was. The performance was very aggressive, yet clean, and so exciting. Does anyone else recall this.....26 years later? Are there any program listings posted online from all the fests?
