B♭/A clarinet Zenit


“The unprecedented legato of the Uebel clarinets allows me to phrase at a length I have always dreamed of!”


Danny Goldman picked up his first clarinet at the age of 11. He performed all the Weber concerti with The Louisville Orchestra by the age of 14. At 15, he was principal and soloist with The World Youth Symphony Orchestra. By 16, he was praised as “flat-out, jaw-agape spectacular” (The Courier-Journal, USA) and called a “wunderkind” (Maestro Robert Franz). Danny began his formal training at The Juilliard School with Ricardo Morales. During his studies, he went on tour throughout South America, China, Japan, USA, and Israel. Performances included a world premiere concerto with The New Juilliard Ensemble in Alice Tully Hall, Mozart’s Requiem in Carnegie Hall for the September 11 Memorial, and solo features on ChamberFest, FOCUS Festival, and The Great Expectations Recital Series. Since graduating, Danny has performed with many organizations including The Cincinnati Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, Boston Symphony, and IRIS Orchestra; he has been a soloist at The Tanglewood Music Center, Dallas Chamber Symphony, Chelsea Music Festival, Spoleto Festival, Pacific Music Festival, The Guggenheim Museum, and The Kennedy Center. Recent collaborations include work with The Amaryllis Quartet, Ken-David Masur, Zubin Mehta, and Emmanuel Villaume. Danny is a tenured member of The Dallas Opera Orchestra. Danny is a founding member of The MAKE Trio; together–with violinist Grace Wollett and pianist Mikhail Berestnev–the trio has partnered with SamsungVR (Virtual Reality) to produce and share 3-dimensional, 360-degree classical music concerts with the public. Upcoming performances include two recitals for The Cliburn Sessions, collaborations with Avant Chamber Ballet and Bruce Wood Dance, and virtual recitals for The Fine Arts Chamber Players.
