One of three events celebrating the 2018 Leonard Bernstein Centennial, the Curtis Institute of Music features a special program saluting Bernstein, certainly one of its most successful former students. The performance includes Bernstein’s Clarinet Sonata as played by David Shifrin (one of only two wind musicians to have won the Avery Fisher Prize), plus works by George Gershwin and Aaron Copland, all performed by the Curtis Chamber Ensemble, the school’s global touring initiative, arguably containing the most talented student-musicians performing in the world today.
