"A year after his performance with Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman and Gabriella Montero at the inauguration of President Obama, virtuoso clarinetist McGill releases his Inaugural CD. It features music from France, Russia and America that truly inspires. Genre: Classical: Sonata. Release Date: 2010. © Copyright-Anthony McGill (884502357493) Record Label: Anthony McGill Music." Liner Notes: “Anthony McGill has chosen an elegant and lyrical program of music from France, America, and Russia, nearly all from the early 20th century. This period saw the birth of modernism — including Cubism, Expressionism, Dadaism, Surrealism, and Futurism — yet this CD focuses on music that shares, in the words of Francis Poulenc, 'that lightness of spirit without which life would be unendurable.'”

On Feb. 11, 2010 AfriClassical posted: “Lexus Magazine: 'Top clarinetist Anthony McGill' on Yo-Yo Ma, Lincoln Center and an Inauguration.'” Today we focus on Anthony McGill's new CD and his performance with the New York Youth Symphony on Sunday, Dec. 5, 2010. The Mission of the New York Youth Symphony is: “To educate and inspire young musicians through exceptional ensemble training and performance opportunities.”
