Testimonials

“David is an extraordinary clarinetist with a highly creative spirit…On the playing side, he possesses a virtuoso technique, great dynamic range and control, a lovely round sound, and a working knowledge and command over the clarinet repertoire. I feel sure that David is en route to a highly successful career as a performer of both traditional and contemporary literature, and as a prominent artist-teacher. He is highly intelligent, with an inquiring mind and will be able to bring his wide-ranging knowledge of clarinet repertoire together with his people skills and intelligence to become an excellent caring teacher.”

-Michael Norsworthy, Chair of Woodwind Department and Prof. of Clarinet at Boston Conservatory

“I had the pleasure of working with David Angelo at the Contemporary Performance Institute at Wellesley College this summer. He is an outstanding player and colleague who possesses a complete technique, a soulful tone, and he can count! Among other pieces we performed together, he did a memorable job on Charles Wuorinen’s New York Notes. Need a clarinetist? Get David Angelo.”

-Fred Sherry, Professor of Cello at the Juilliard School

I can only agree with my distinguished colleagues when searching for words of praise to describe David Angelo. He excelled in the contemporary chamber music groups I had the pleasure to coach.  David exhibits grace and ease, not only in his playing, but also in his interactions with others. What a delightful musician and person!”

“David is a very serious, talented and hardworking player.  He has a beautiful sound with a sensitive and musical vibrato, and his technique is excellent. David has a very natural and musical approach to everything he plays and his sense of phrase shape and the long line is unusually developed in such a young player.”
