SummaryInternationally renowned clarinetist Maryanne Lacaille returns to the Seattle Central Library with a sizzling concert of clarinet music recently composed in South America.
DescriptionClarinetist Maryanne Lacaille has garnered international attention for her virtuosity, creativity and command of her instrument producing rich lush phrasing and dynamic programming. Her travels to over 26 countries including Hong Kong, Italy, Germany, Mexico, Central America, Hawaii, Thailand, South India, Venezuela, Mumbai, Cuba and Brazil during the past 30 years has become the fabric and force of her insight into musical cultures. In December 2014, Maryanne traveled to Samoa and Auckland New Zealand to research the rich heritage and tradition of the voice. A recent appearance at the International Clarinet Association Conference 2014 in Baton Rouge reviewer touted her performance of the Resanovic alt.music.ballistix (for clarinet and tape) as "un-surrealistic and brilliant performance”.

Pianist Jason S. Kuo studied with Martha Wasley at the University of California at Berkeley and was later coached by Janet Guggenheim, whose worldwide concert credits included over thirty years of collaboration with the celebrated violinist Itzhak Perlman. Dr. Kuo performed in public masterclasses of Richard Goode and the late Karl Schnabel while residing in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has been teaching piano privately since 1991, and has been actively performing as an accompanist and a chamber musician. Dr. Kuo also performs as the keyboard member of the Northwest Symphony Orchestra and Octava Chamber Orchestra.
