Mihai Ritivoiu (Piano) and Jack McNeill (Clarinet)

We are delighted to welcome these outstanding musicians:

 

Prize-winning pianist Mihai Ritivoiu will perform works by Couperin, Beethoven, Ravel and Chopin - all composers whose works have kept him busy and lifted his spirits during this difficult period.

 

Clarinettist, composer and cross-discipline musician Jack McNeill will perform a programme including Fantasies by Telemann and Widmann, the music of folk musician Rowan Rheingans, a piece by James MacMillan and a piece of his own called Shearwater.

  • Jack McNeill

    Jack McNeill is a clarinettist, composer and cross-discipline musician interested in exploring the points where different traditions and sound worlds meet. He directs Propellor, a 12-piece ensemble developed at Snape Maltings and writes music using live electronics, field recording and (lots of) clarinets!

    His work is full of variety - on-stage musician/actor (Danserye/When I Die), improvising at the RSC, recording for Gecko Theatre, Cerys Matthews and Emulsion Sinfonietta, premiering works by Philip Glass, Richard Ayres, Karin Rehnqvist, Michael Finnissy, Joe Cutler, Ed Bennett and Howard Skempton among others, orchestral and chamber work with the LSO, Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Ensemble 360, Sacconi and Gildas Quartets. A member of Decibel, Joe Acheson’s Hidden Orchestra and the clarinettist for Tao of Glass (Philip Glass/Improbable), premiered at Manchester International Festival 2019, touring in 2021.
