(Boston MA) – Navona Records is pleased to announce the release of PHOENIX IN FLIGHT, the new Richard Stoltzman orchestral repertoire collection of works by Weber, Debussy, Bottesini, and Tchaikovsky (arr. Takemitsu).
A must-have for fans of the soloist renowned as “a master of the clarinet” (New York Times) and “the greatest clarinet player in the world” (Boston Globe), PHOENIX IN FLIGHT features the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra led by conductor Kirk Trevor and includes PDFs of Stoltzman’s clarinet parts as enhanced content, standard on all Navona releases.
