About the Founders/Directors
Cellist/playwright Harry Clark and pianist Sanda Schuldmann, in nearly three decades of music making, have appeared on every important chamber
music platform in this country. The New York Times characterizes the Duo as an “exuberant pair, exhibiting artistic rapport and expressive unity with a quality of ardent commitment that shines through their work,” and The Washington Post comments: “leading a long line of pluses is the marvelous musical nature of everything they do,” their concerts are anticipated as events where music is experienced rather than merely listened to.
Recipient of Connecticut’s highest artistic achievement – The 2002 Governor’s Arts Award, and the LUMIE – Tucson Pima Arts Council Award in 2005, the twosome have lead the organization they founded – Chamber Music PLUS – to regional and national renown.
