a wonderful...performance of these 20th-century works

American clarinetist Michael Dean has performed as a recitalist and master clinician internationally and across the United States to much acclaim. On a tour of music schools in England he was praised as "dynamic," "inspirational," "super," and "a brilliant performer." The tour was highlighted by a stop at the world-renowned Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
