Mark Nuccio, who has been the New York Philharmonic's associate principal and solo E-flat clarinetist for the past 16 years, announced last month that he is leaving to take the principal clarinet job at the Houston Symphony.
Before he steps down at the Philharmonic, he's featured in this week's broadcast of a concert from last year’s Bravo! Vail festival. Nuccio is the soloist in Copland’s Clarinet Concerto. Bramwell Tovey leads the orchestra.
