In this episode of the podcast I'm joined by the wonderful Brad Behn of Behn mouthpieces. We focus on his "EPIC" line of mouthpieces that feature reverse-engineered proprietary rubber, o-ring tenons, and are available in tilted ergonomic designs, but we also touch on his barrels, bells, reeds, and some really wonderful things he's planning for the future of his company. His approach is all about getting more from the instrument with less effort from the player and his artistic wisdom and vision is truly inspiring.
In today's episode of the podcast I'm joined by the legendary Charles Neidich for a conversation about his upcoming "Wa" concert series in New York City, and he shares some incredible insight into his performance and historical study of pieces including Elliott Carter's "Gra" and the Mozart Clarinet Concerto, for which he is releasing his own annotated version in the spring of 2018.
