Antonio Tinelli, clarinet, 7:00 pm

Antonio Tinelli has been defined by international critics with expressions such as “in a word, superb” (Fanfare Magazine), “perfect musicality” (Musica Magazine), and “masterful interpretation” (The Clarinet). Lincoln musicians Mark Clinton (piano) and Karen Becker (cello) join Antonio Tinelli to present a concert of Italian and American classics, concluding with a rousing version of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue arranged for clarinet and piano.

Michael Lowenstern, bass clarinet and electronics concert, 9:00 pm

Michael Lowenstern, widely considered one of the finest bass clarinetists in the world, has performed, recorded and toured as a soloist and with ensembles of every variety. A cross between Eric Dolphy, Meat Beat Manifesto, NPR's This American Life, The Gap Band and Igor Stravinsky, Michael Lowenstern's sound is hard to define. It's ClassicoFunkTronica. On stage, Michael Lowenstern brings not only his formidable skill and finesse on the bass clarinet, but also his sense of humor, a deep appreciation for pop culture, an enthusiasm which can only be called infections and, well, cool toys.
