Clarinetist Michael Dean in Guest Recital

October 6, 2021
American clarinetist Michael Dean, widely known as “ClarinetMike,” will present a solo recital at Baylor University on Sunday, October 17, beginning at 5:00 p.m. in Meadows Recital Hall, located in the Glennis McCrary Music Building.
Dr. Dean performs and teaches across the USA and internationally to consistent praise and acclaim. His career is headlined by appearances at Carnegie Hall, ClarinetFest, NACWPI, and Royal Northern College of Music, with recent recitals and master classes in Italy, Spain, Canada, Michigan, Ohio, Alabama, Kansas, Iowa, Louisiana, and Texas.
The first half of his Baylor program will be devoted to three pieces for clarinet and media: Robert Fruehwald’s Summer Sunrise on the Mississippi from 2009, Peter Meechan’s Burn: re-mixed from 2020, and Robert Fruehwald’s Andy and Me from 2006.
After intermission, his recital will resume with three works for solo clarinet. Michael Dean will play one movement, marked “Fairly slowly,” from Alec Wilder’s Low Register Suite No. 1 from 1973, and then the “Gently” movement from Adolphus Hailstork’s Three Smiles for Tracey from 1989. Those will be followed by the world premiere of Mark Carlson’s Song of Solitude from 2021.
The program will close with the world premiere of Austin Ali’s Nimbus! From 2021.
This guest recital by Michael Dean is free of charge and open to the public.
