World-Class Duo to Perform at Christ Church


The Christ Church Concert Series Concludes its 2016-17 season on Sunday, May 21 at 4:00 p.m. with the world-class Shtrykov-Tanaka Duo.  The program will include extended works by Johannes Brahms, Carl Maria von Weber, Camille Saint-Saëns, and Francis Poulenc.

Comprised of two sensationally gifted and acclaimed virtuosi, clarinetist Maksim Shtrykov and pianist Misuzu Tanaka, the Shtrykov-Tanaka Duo has been heard throughout the U.S., garnering an impressive record of instant engagements.  While clarinet and piano duos are still rare gems on the modern concert stage, the duo makes it their mission to transform the superb instrumental combination from a rare occurrence to a welcomed guest in concert series across the globe.  The musicians first met in December 2012 and, as avid chamber music collaborators, instantly felt a unique artistic connection resulting in an inspiring and creative friendship.  Both artists are graduates of the Juilliard School and enjoy extensive international solo careers that have heard them in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Germany’s Leipzig Gewandhaus, and Japan’s Izumi Hall.

Sunday’s concert is sponsored in part by a grant from the Talbot County and Maryland State Arts Councils.  Christ Church is located at 111 S. Harrison Street in downtown Easton.  The concert is free and doors open at 3:30 p.m.  A freewill offering will be received.  Call 410-822-2677 or visit for more information.
