    “Keep an eye on this young artist,” wrote a critic in the American magazine Fanfare in his review of hearing Anna Hashimoto’s CD A Touch of France, praising her “lovely, firm tone,” “superbly controlled legato,” and perfect sound in all registers. Born in 1989, the Japanese clarinetist, who grew up in Great Britain and studied with Michael Collins at the Royal Academy of Music in London, has won numerous renowned competitions and has performed as a soloist with the English Chamber Orchestra, the Brussels Philharmonic, and the Japan and New Japan Philharmonics. For her Lucerne debut, Anna Hashimoto has chosen two milestones of the clarinet repertoire: Debussy’s First Rhapsody and Brahms’s F minor Sonata. But she will also pay homage to the Festival theme when she performs Arthur Benjamin’s Tombeau de Ravel, her favorite piece from her own childhood, and, with Norbert Burgmüller and William Hurlstone, presents two child prodigies (“Wunderkinder”) who died all too young.
