Saxophonist Joshua Redman’s strong tone and fluid approach match his wide palette of styles. Since his first album in 1993, which was soon followed by his first Orchestra Hall appearance in 1995, he has collaborated with a diverse array of musicians on everything from hard bop to jazz standards.
Israel-born clarinetist Anat Cohen brings elements of swing to a musical vision that embraces sounds from Brazil, Africa and the Middle East. With a tentet of horns, strings and percussion, Cohen expands on this sound and her global musical journey. This performance will include a Symphony Center co-commission of a concerto for solo clarinet and ensemble by Cohen’s longtime colleague Oded Lev-Ari.
