James Campbell has been called “Canada’s pre-eminent clarinetist and wind soloist”, by the Toronto Star. He has performed as soloist and chamber musician in over 35 countries with over 65 orchestras including the Boston Pops, Montreal Symphony, and the London Symphony. He has collaborated with Glenn Gould and Aaron Copland and toured with over 40 string quartets, including the Guarneri, Amadeus, and Vermeer. Of his over 50 recordings, the BBC and The Times of London rated his recording of Brahms’ Clarinet Quintet as the best available, while his CD Stolen Gems (Marquis Records) won a Canadian Juno Award. Mr. Campbell was professor of music at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music from 1988 to 2019, and continues to give master classes throughout the world.
