My new friends Bubreg² had a great 2018 with successes all over Europe. I had the pleasure of meeting clarinetist Bence Bubreg in Szentendre, Hungary last July and thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful conversation about all things musical – from performance to composition and beyond. Unfortunately, his brother, saxophonist Márton was unable to join us as he was preparing for a solo competition that day.

Check out this retrospective of their year – and enjoy their terrific studio performance of “Departure” from my Duo Sonata at the 3:00 mark:
