This performance is the world premiere of the chamber version of Jonathan Leshnoff’s Double Concerto for Clarinet, Bassoon, and Orchestra, commissioned by the Pittsburgh Symphony in 2018.

The orchestral version of the work was premiered by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in Spring 2019 with Nancy Gores.

This version is being completed by the composer himself.
