This concert marks the 70th birthday of influential American composer John Adams with his Gnarly Buttons.
Premiered by RCM alumnus Michael Collins in 1996, this playful work showcases the solo clarinet against a minimalist accompaniment of American sounds: from hymns and hoedowns to mad cows and marching bands! The evening also offers the chance to hear world premieres by two of the RCM’s most talented up-and-coming composers.
