Clarinet virtuoso Jorge Montilla closed the Jewel Box season at NEIU on April 19, 2013 with a program of mostly Latin-American music. With pianist Kay Kim, Jorge played music for B-Flat clarinet on the first half of the program: works by Carlos Guastavino, Astor Piazzolla, and Arturo Marquez. After intermission, he switched to E-Flat clarinet – an instrument that is his specialty – and opened with the Second Sonata by Alfred Prinz (a work composed for him). The rest of the program held music by Guastavino, Piazzolla and Alberto Ginastera, as well as a piece for solo E-Flat clarinet by Jorge Montilla himself.
