This is the 27th season conclusion with Professor Gray and Jennifer Johnson/oboe, Judith Farmer/bassoon, Richard Todd/horn, & Joanne Pearce Martin/piano performing Mozart's Quintet K452 & a new Quintet for this combination by Stephen Cohn called "Bellscape." Gray will begin the program with Saint-Saen's Sonata for clarinet & piano about which one reviewer said: "In the Saint-Saens Sonata, Gray's clarient playing poured over the listener's ears like molten chocolate, seducing the listener with his pliant expressiveness and poignant vulnerability."
