Richard Stoltzman’s Brahms Intermezzo audio available

Richard Stoltzman and William Ransom’s transcription of the Brahms Intermezzo from Six Pieces for Piano, Op. 118 can now be heard in a mesmerizing recording of a live performance by Mr. Stoltzman accompanied by Menahem Pressler on piano. Since its release in 2011 as part of Stoltzman’s 21st Century Series, Intermezzo has garnered much interest among clarinet enthusiasts. The arrangement allows the player to choose to perform in the original key of A, with parts provided for A and B-flat clarinets; or in an alternate version in B-flat (includes transposed piano score and B-flat clarinet part).
