Jean Kopperud Bio:
"The American clarinetist JEAN KOPPERUD was absolutely smashing" (New York Post). Reviewers have called Kopperud “superhuman”, “magnificent”, “unforgettably visual”, “staggering”, “sensational”, “dazzling”, “wonderful”, “the total clarinetist” and the list goes on. But possibly Allan Kozinn of the New York Times says it best. “It began brilliantly, with an overdriven, virtuosic clarinet line that Jean Kopperud played with the power, texture and coloration that have become her trademark. . . Ms. Kopperud has the technique and imagination to make nearly anything sound interesting.”
