Peter Stoll is a musician in Toronto, Canada, playing all sizes of the clarinet family and saxophone, for symphonic and opera orchestras, new music ensembles, the Trio d'Argento, and in freelance chamber concerts as well as solo recitals. He teaches privately, and at the Faculty of Music, University of Toronto, where, in addition to clarinet lessons, Peter coaches chamber music, co-teaches a woodwind performance class, and runs a course in the Business of Music Performance.
Another side of his career is frequent music festival adjudication, and examining for The Royal Conservatory of Music. Peter has authored a number of recent articles for the International Clarinet Association journal and other publications, and was the chief compiler of the 2014 clarinet examination syllabus for the Conservatory; these are all available for reading and download here on the Publications page. Eventually this page will also host downloads of some of his compositions, arrangements, and cadenzas.
- Peter recently performed chamber music with Winnipeg violinist Oleg Pokhanovski, professor at the University of Manitoba, on his “Oleg and Friends” series. He also played in the chamber orchestras for two contemporary operas in Toronto: Claude Vivier's “Kopernikus”, and the world premiere of Dean Burry's “Shanawdithit”. Kopernikus was a monumental task, with the instrumentalists performing fully memorized and onstage with the singers, and the entire cast was nominated for a Dora Award! (see Twitter feed below).
- Peter was a featured performer on the just-released CD “Suite Nostalgique, Musical Impressions from Ukraine”, please email for details about how to purchase a copy!
- Congratulations to Peter's UofT clarinet student Gennady Grebenchuk, for winning First Prize in his woodwind class at the Ontario Provincial Music Competition!
