CLASSIC fM's Rosie Pentreath writes......The US clarinettist meets art with music in this stunning performance of works by Coleridge-Taylor, Hailstork and Danielpour at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. "I grew up in a household where music and art were a part of everyday life," US clarinettist Anthony McGill wrote in the programme for a recent performance at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. "It was how you went through the world. Creating, appreciating, and learning without hesitation. We were taught that to live a full life you needed to fully experience music and art."

McGill was performing a programme of works with the Catalyst Quartet – Karla Donehew Perez and Abi Fayette on violin, Paul Laraia on the viola and Karlos Rodriguez playing cello – in an online event called ‘Cadence: The Sounds of Justice, the Sounds of a Movement'. PHOTO: Stephanie Berger
