“(Emma) ... does not just perform, but uses the music to communicate something wonderful.”

Internationally acclaimed clarinettist, recitalist, chamber musician, recording artist and lecturer, Emma grew up in London. Her career was launched when in 1984, at the age of 17, she won BBC Young Musician of the Year followed by the Young Concert Artists Auditions in New York. Emma Johnson is one of the few clarinettists to have established a busy career as a solo performer which has taken her to major European, American and Asian venues as well as to Africa and Australasia.
