“Carnivale!” — a concert of classical works for piano and clarinet by Maksim Shtrykov and Alina Kiryayeva — is coming this weekend to the Montauk Library and the Rogers Memorial Library in Southampton. The Montauk program is scheduled for Saturday at 7:30 p.m. The Southampton concert will take place Sunday afternoon at 3. “Carnivale!” includes works by Bassi, Chopin, Liszt, Saint-Saens, Messager, Giampieri, Rachmaninoff, and Rossini. The program, which is free at both locations, has been recommended for younger audiences, first-time concertgoers, and families with children.
Mr. Shtrykov was a first-prize winner of the Belarus National Woodwind Competition and performed his solo debut recital at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall in April 2007. He has given clarinet recitals and chamber music concerts at the Polish Baltic Philharmonic, the Belarusian State Philharmonic, Izumi Hall in Osaka, Japan, the Miller Theatre at Columbia University, and the Baruch Performing Arts Center, among other venues.
A native of Ukraine, Ms. Kiryayeva gave her first solo piano recital at age 8 and had her solo debut with an orchestra at the age of 11. A winner of Italy’s Senigallia International Competition, Ms. Kiryayeva has also claimed top prizes in several piano competitions in the United States, including the Grace Welsh International Competition and the California Young Artists International Competition.
