About The Event

In April 2020, clarinetist Graeme Steele Johnson discovered the unpublished manuscript to a forgotten, 127-year-old Octet in the archives of the Library of Congress by the Berlin-born, Boston-based composer Charles Martin Loeffler (1861-1935), one of the most performed American composers of his time. Johnson spent a year reconstructing the Octet’s score from the 75-page manuscript, creating the first critical edition of the music and revealing a kaleidoscopic piece, newly recorded and performed by a stellar lineup of the most sought-after soloists of classical music world today.
