Chamber Music: Boris Allakhverdyan At The Athenaeum

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Quintexas will NOT be performing on Jan. 8 for the Chamber Music series. However, we are pleased to announce that Boris Allakhverdyan, the world famous clarinetist (the Principal clarinetist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra) will be the replacement. Boris Allakhverdyan will be joined by Anton Smirnoff, piano and Shoushik Barsoumian, soprano.

Boris Allakhverdyan has appeared as a soloist with a number of orchestras, participated in festivals, and been a music educator who has conducted master classes in a number of different venues.

The pianist Anton Smirnoff has performed more than 1,000 public performances worldwide. He is a prizewinner of several international piano competitions, including the Moscow International Competition.

Shoushik Barsoumian has concentrated on Lieder and Opera equally, performing oratorio and opera in both Europe and the United States.

The repertoire for this concert will include “The Shepherd on the Rock,” a Lied for soprano, clarinet and piano by Franz Schubert. One of Schubert’s most famous songs, it is rarely heard live due to its difficulty.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
