Richard Stoltzman, universally recognized as one of the world’s premier clarinetists, and the talented members of his family—acclaimed violinist Lucy Chapman Stoltzman, jazz pianist and their son, the keyboardist Peter Stoltzman—have thrilled audiences of all ages at Carnegie Hall (in Carnegie's first-ever family concert), the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Ojai Festival, Gilmore International Keyboard Festival, Forth Worth Symphony, Fanueil Hall in Boston, among others, and recently to thousands at the Hollywood Bowl. The family concert has also been featured in a live broadcast from Toronto for the CBC. Members of the family can also be heard on several tracks on RCA Victor/Red Seal and Windham Hill recordings, and have been featured in two different editions of CBS Sunday Morning. “They are remarkably versatile, polished musicians who make music together with an infectious sense of joy” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).

The noted pianist and Stoltzman family friend David Deveau joins the family for this concert.
