Clarinet Chamber Group
Members of the U-M Life Sciences Orchestra

The concert will open with Claude Debussy’s Premiere Rhapsodie for solo clarinet and piano by Sam Terman and Chester Chan. This piece juxtaposes contrasting lyricism and virtuosity to create Debussy’s signature impressionism. Sam Terman (clarinet), Chase Schuler and Liz Hong (violin), Lisa Yoon (viola) and Emily Bonem (cello) will then perform the Brahms Clarinet Quintet. The work of a seasoned master, the 1891 Quintet represents one of Brahms’s final and greatest chamber music achievements.
