Martin Fröst

Undoubtedly one of the most outstanding wind instrumentalists of today, clarinetist Martin Fröst future highlights include debuts with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchester, Orchestre National de France, Detroit Symphony, and Washington's National Symphony Orchestra, Orpheus Chamber, Gewandhaus Orchester Leipzig, Bamberger Symphoniker, and NDR Radiophilharmonie Hannover, plus return visits to the Rotterdam Philharmonic and Luzerner Sinfonieorchester. He also returns to the Australian Chamber Orchestra following a substantial tour of Europe with them last season, and embarks on a major European tour with the Amsterdam Sinfonietta performing Weber and Copland in May 2013.Last season, Martin Fröst performed with the Wiener Symphoniker, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Minnesota Orchestra (all under Osmo Vänskä), Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra (Gustavo Dudamel), City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and Die Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen as well as the Tonkünstler, Oslo, and Royal Stockholm Philharmonic orchestras. In August 2012, he made his debut at New York's Mostly Mozart Festival performing Mozart's Clarinet Concerto under the direction of Louis Langrée.Keen to expand the existing clarinet concerto repertoire, Martin has personally championed Anders Hillborg's Peacock Tales (which incorporates elements of mime and dance), Kalevi Aho's Concerto (commissioned for him by the Borletti-Buitoni Trust) and Rolf Martinsson's Concerto Fantastique.
