Angel of the Clarinet

Kim Cole Luevano ('91)Bright Angel, the new CD from Kim Cole Luevano ('91), associate professor of clarinet, features contemporary works for clarinet and piano from American female composers. She plays the clarinet accompanied by pianist Midori Koga, professor of piano at the University of Toronto. Luevano's original goal was to perform works for clarinet that were unrecorded or under-recorded.

"In recording the works, I hope to give them greater visibility so that each work is performed more frequently," she says.

"It's nice to find a theme in addition to finding pieces that complement each other. In this case, the selections featured contemporary American composers who happened to be women."
