Russian-born clarinettist Julian Milkis, now a Canadian citizen, comes to the NCH’s John Field Room to give a first Dublin performance of a set of Miniatures by the doyen of Georgian composers, Giya Kancheli. The Miniatures, 18 in all, were originally for violin and piano, and are taken from music Kancheli wrote for films or theatre productions. Milkis, who lays claim to being “the only student of clarinet icon Benny Goodman,” will be partnered by Dublin-based Ukrainian pianist Anna Kiselyova.
