Ray Kimber’s IsoMike label returns to NativeDSD with their second DSD release. Recorded in Stereo and Multichannel DSD 64, you won’t want to miss this one. Better yet, NativeDSD is bringing it to our listeners 3 weeks ahead of its official release date.
The new DSD release features the Sonolumina Ensemble performing Mozart’s Quintet for Clarinet and String Quartet in A K 581. Along with Romantic Encores, featuring clarinetist Russell Harlow.
Ray Kimber of IsoMike says “We used this for demo at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). It is stunning in DSD and even better in DSD 4.0 Surround Sound.”
Russell Harlow, Clarinetist
Clarinetist Russell Harlow is one of the nation’s premiere solo and chamber clarinetists. Having grown up in Los Angeles during the golden age of Heifetz, Piatigorsky, and Primrose teaching at USC, he studied as a young artist first with clarinetist Gary Foster, then with Mitchell Lurie. He attended a Gregor Piatigorsky master class and performed and was coached on the Brahms Trio with him at Piatigorsky’s home.
At the age of twenty-one, Russell won the audition to join the Utah Symphony and, while serving as Associate Principal Clarinetist, he continued his studies, traveling to spend a summer working with Harold (Buddy) Wright, the late principal clarinetist of the Boston Symphony, and with virtuoso violinist Charles Libove.
Russell Harlow’s love of chamber music led him first to found Salt Lake City’s Nova Chamber Music Series, then to join as Co-Director and Artist in Residence of the
Beethoven Festival Park City, the chamber festival founded in 1983 that continues as Utah’s oldest classical music festival. Russell Harlow invited his mentor Charles Libove, with pianist Nina Lugovoy, to perform at the Beethoven Festival and they performed together at the festival for many years, as well as presenting Beethoven Festival concert together at Carnegie’s Weill Hall in New York City.
After 41 years, Russell Harlow retired from the Utah Symphony to pursue his solo, chamber music and recording career, and currently performs over forty concerts a year. Russell Harlow has performed as a guest artist and lecturer with international clarinet festivals in Canada, Puerto Rico, Texas, and Utah, including in July of 2007 when he performed the “Evocations de Slovaquie” by Karel Husa, one of the works included on the ISOMIKE recording “Chamber Music for Clarinets and Strings by Dahl, Martinu and Husa” at the International Clarfest in Vancouver, BC.
