Bookmark and Share

Anthony McGill, the New York Philharmonic's principal clarinetist, and brother Demarre McGill, the Seattle Symphony Orchestra's principle flutist, return to a beloved training ground, the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra, for an album of works for flute, clarinet, and orchestra. It features world-premiere recordings of specially commissioned duo concertos. The album's title track, celebrated African-American composer Michael Abel's Winged Creatures, was commissioned for the project by Cedille Records. The orchestra originally commissioned Joel Puckett's Concerto Duo for a 2012 concert with the McGill brothers. The album is rounded out with works by Danzi and Saint-Saëns.
