Atkins, David

Clarinetist, instructor and longtime member of the Los Angeles-based Westwood Wind Quintet, which has tackled a daunting array of modern compositions by mavericks such as Samuel Barber, Paul Hindemith, Gyorgy Ligeti, Carl Nielsen, and Arnold Schoenberg.

William Schmidt dedicated his “Duo with Cadenzas” to David and fellow WWQ member, oboist Peter Christ. In fact, one of David’s many recordings includes one simply titled Oboist Peter Christ. He also appears on Ebony Forest, New Virtuoso Music for Clarinet and Piano, Songs of Early America, Sacred and Profane, Thomas Stevens, Trumpet, A Tribute to Soprano Bethany Beardslee, and the 1979 Frank Sinatra boxed set, Trilogy.
