Meet the Musicians: Alexander Fiterstein

Name: Alexander Fiterstein
Nickname: Alex
Instrument: Clarinet
Friday night libation: Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon (if I can afford it).
Favorite piece that's being performed at PCMF 2017 and why: Ravel Introduction and Allegro - great textures and colors thanks to the unique combination of instruments.
What are you looking forward to most about spending a week in the Bay Area? Haven't spent much time in the Bay Area before. Looking forward to exploring it more.
What's the craziest or most memorable thing that's happened to you during a performance? A page turner fell off the stage during a recital I was playing. I never saw anything like that before or since. Luckily he got up and gave us a thumbs up. The pianist and I didn't stop, we just kept playing... it was a very dramatic performance.
