Clarinetist Narek Arutyunian is an artist who “reaches passionate depths with seemingly effortless technical prowess and beguiling sensitivity” (Washington Post).  He has performed Copland’s Clarinet Concerto with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s at Alice Tully Hall as well as Artie Shaw’s Concerto for Clarinet with The Boston Pops. Winner of the 2010 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, Mr. Arutyunian was presented in debut recitals at Merkin Concert Hall and the Kennedy Center to rave reviews. By the age of 16, he had already won first prizes in the International Young Musicians Competition in Prague and the Musical Youth of the Planet Competition in Moscow.  He recorded the Weber Concertino for clarinet with the State Symphony Orchestra of New Russia.

“Arutyunian’s playing reaches passionate depths with seemingly effortless technical prowess, beguiling sensitivity and an energetic stage presence. His deepest notes were at once vibrant and enveloping. His highest range had the clarity of a vibrant coloratura.”

— The Washington Post

“A challenge of any clarinet recital is to transcend the familiar sound of the instrument. Narek Arutyunian presented a wealth of colors, voices, articulations. We heard dazzling technique in the service of coherent and considered chamber music.”

— The Boston Musical Intelligencer

His performance stopped time.
