Anthony McGill is one of classical music’s brightest stars. He just won Lincoln Center’s prestigious, $100,000 Avery Fisher Prize, awarded in recognition of musicians who represent the highest level of excellence and whose vision and leadership have expanded the reach of classical music. We’re bringing him straight to your living room from the historic Mechanics Hall in Massachusetts.
Clarinetist Anthony McGill is one of classical music’s most recognizable and brilliantly multifaceted figures. He serves as the principal clarinet of the New York Philharmonic — that orchestra’s first African-American principal player — and maintains a dynamic international solo and chamber music career. McGill’s frequent recital partner, Taiwanese-born pianist Gloria Chien, has a diverse musical life as a noted performer, concert presenter and educator.
“Mr. McGill played with his trademark brilliance, penetrating sound and rich character. That the ovation was so enthusiastic was no surprise.” — The New York Times
“[McGill exhibits an] exquisite combination of technical refinement and expressive radiance” – The Baltimore Sun
