Martin Fröst

Clarinetist, conductor and Sony Classical recording artist, Martin Fröst is known for pushing musical boundaries and has been described by the New York Times as having “a virtuosity and a musicianship unsurpassed by any clarinettist — perhaps any instrumentalist — in my memory”. Fröst has appeared with orchestras such as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the New York and Los Angeles philharmonics, Philharmonia Orchestra and Orchestre National de France. In 2016/17, he will make his debuts with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. He also returns to the Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival, NHK Symphony Orchestra and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, with whom he will also tour Europe. As a chamber musician, Fröst regularly performs with leading international artists including Sol Gabetta, Janine Jansen, Yuja Wang, Leif Ove Andsnes, Roland Pöntinen, Maxim Rysanov and Antoine Tamestit.
