Clarinetist Narek Arutyunian Performs at the Pequot Library in Westport on Feb. 10
You don't hear about up-and-coming clarinetists too often these days, but Armenian-born 21-year-old Narek Arutyunian is just that. Arutyunian will be accompanied by pianist Solon Gordon at the Pequot Library this Sunday for a concert featuring sonatas for clarinet and piano by Brahms, Poulenc, Paul Schoenfield and Leonard Bernstein. He's already performed with the Boston Pops as a soloist, played a gig at the Louvre in Paris and sat in with the Kaliningrad Philharmonic, the Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra and the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra in Russia. He's been winning awards since he was 15, so at 21 he's already a seasoned veteran.
