10/24/2021 Catalyst Quartet with Anthony McGill, clarinet

Assigned Seating
Buckley, Arms, Amherst College
Sunday, Oct 24, 2021 at 3:00 PM (ET)

Hailed by The New York Times at its Carnegie Hall debut in 2020 as “invariably energetic and finely burnished ... playing with earthy vigor,” the Grammy Award-winning Catalyst Quartet celebrated the 10th anniversary of its founding by the Sphinx Competition. The ensemble believes in the unity that can be achieved through music, and imagines programs and projects with this in mind, redefining and reimagining the classical music experience.

Star clarinetist Anthony McGill returns to the Buckley stage to team up with the Catalyst Quartet. Hailed for his “trademark brilliance, penetrating sound and rich character” (The New York Times), Anthony McGill is one of classical music’s most recognizable and brilliantly multifaceted figures. In addition to his dynamic international solo and chamber music career, McGill is principal clarinet of the New York Philharmonic-- the first African American principal player in the organization's history. In 2020, he was awarded the Avery Fisher Prize, one of classical music’s most significant awards given in recognition of soloists who represent the highest level of musical excellence.
