Her exquisite interpretation and an unparalleled musical talent are the attributes which recommend Shirley Brill as one of the most emblematic artists of her generation. The celebrated clarinettist is the guest of the National Radio Orchestra in a concert to take place tonight, starting 7pm, at the Romanian Radio Hall, under Adrian Morar’s baton. The programme for the evening includes the Overture to the opera Wilhelm Tell, by Gioachino Rossioni, the Concerto no. 2 in E flat major for clarinet and orchestra, by Carl Maria von Weber (soloist: Shirley Brill) and the Symphony no. 6 in B minor, “Pathétique”, by Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
Boasting an impressive career as a soloist, which started with a concert alongside the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and master conductor Zubin Mehta, Shirley Brill has been the guest of the Hamburg Symphonic Orchestra, the Czech Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, the Geneva Chamber Orchestra, the Jerusalem Symphonic Orchestra, the Westfalen New Philharmonic, and many others. Shirley Brill is a laureate of the Geneva International Competition (2007) and the Markneukirchen International Competition (2006) and was awarded a special prize in the ARD International Competition in Munich.
