Biography

BRYAN A. CRUMPLER, CLARINET

Internationally acclaimed, African-American Clarinetist Bryan A. Crumpler (b.
1979) is a born performer and world-class musician stuck in an athlete’s
body. Born to a family of superstar football players, he was destined to follow into a career in the National Football League. Having never been good at facing off with 300-lbs human bulldozers, however, he broke from the mould to take after his mother and has now become one of America’s most widely acclaimed clarinet soloists.

A prize winner of numerous national and international competitions throughout the globe, including in the top international clarinet competition of Dos Hermanas Spain, he has already built a multi-national concert career spanning 4 continents and nearly 100 concert venues. To date, audiences big and small throughout the USA, the Netherlands, England, Switzerland, Germany, France, Belgium, Spain, Italy, South Africa, and China have been able to witness Bryan at work.

Concertmaster Liviu Prunaru of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam as well as Alexandre Rabinovitch, longstanding piano-duo partner of Martha Argerich, have praised him for his enthusiastic performances. From his 2008 solo tour in South Africa, audiences spoke of him as “an Itzhak Perlman, Wynton Marsalis, Yo-Yo Ma equivalent” and aspects of his playing as “the closest one can get to God without dying first”. Celebrated jazz great Branford Marsalis put it simply: “He’s a real musician… and you don’t get to meet those every day”.
