Ashkenazy Plays Copland
A concert of jazz, classics and romance. Renowned clarinetist Dimitri Ashkenazy plays Copland's exuberant concerto. The concert ends with Mendelssohn's early masterwork which he composed when he was only 15 years old. It's a treasure and a harbinger of the great things to come!.

He has appeared with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at London’s Royal Festival Hall; Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin at the Hollywood Bowl; SBS Youth Orchestra at Sydney Opera House; Czech Philharmonic Orchestra at the Casals Festival in Puerto Rico; and Japan Philharmonic, Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony, and Mito Chamber orchestras in Japan.
