of our goals at Nancy Shear Arts Services is to represent the
multi-dimensional qualities of our clients. Clarinetist Richard
Stoltzman, in addition to being a Grammy� Award-winning and
internationally renowned musician, has the unusually fine gift of oral
and written eloquence. We regularly incorporated Mr. Stoltzman's quotes
into press releases and cover letters to add personalization and
insight into our work on his behalf. Finnish composer Einojuhani
Rautavaara composed his first Clarinet Concerto as a commission to be
performed by Mr. Stoltzman and the National Symphony Orchestra. During
the compositional process, Mr. Stoltzman traveled to Finland,
exchanging ideas with Rautavaara. Mr. Stoltzman kept a diary detailing
his collaboration with the composer, and we were able to present this
intriguing literature as supplementary material to our press release,
and were able to further personalize our pitches after understanding
this special artistic interaction. Mr. Stoltzman is also a skilled,
Cordon-bleu trained pastry chef. With our creative pitches, we were
able to place stories and strategize with presenters identifying Mr.
Stoltzman as the "Culinary Clarinetist." Mr. Stoltzman's son, Peter
John Stoltzman is a highly talented jazz pianist who performs in
recital regularly with his father. We customized pitches for the family
duo, and placed them on Voice of America's Father's Day feature which
was broadcast to 85 million people around the world. Click here for Website.
