Igor Begelman reviwes/press
"The young Russian-born clarinetist,... has reached a level of security in which the clarinet is his voice. Listeners were not aware of fingers, keys, reeds or breathing as he effortlessly searched the limits of the instrument's capacities. Its limit was only that of Begelman's imagination, and there was no sign of any boundaries in this program."
The Inquirer, Philadelphia
"Begelman captivated the audience, using a wide range of colors and textures to illustrate Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A major, K. 622. He eased with seamless elegance and agility through the faster movements and allowed listeners to linger in the magnificently pure atmosphere created in the delicate Adagio."
New Haven Register
"The piece (Weber, Concertino) demands virtuosic agility - a quality Begelman possesses in abundance - but also lets the soloist show off his instrument's melodic elegance. Begelman won the audience over with his expressive, lyrical performance."
Savannah Morning News, Georgia
