Meet a Musician: Eric Hoeprich, Early Clarinetist



Bloomington, Indiana, is a special city for musicians—visitor or resident, foreign or domestic, famous or little-known. It also happens to be a city with a large university and a large school of music, a meeting place for all kinds of performers, educators, and researchers. This post is part of a photo series that looks at the many people in Bloomington who call themselves a musician.

For nearly three decades, Eric Hoeprich has specialized in the early clarinet. He is founder and director of the acclaimed wind ensemble Nachtmusique and has written a history of the clarinet for Yale University Press.

Eric has been teaching at I.U. for several years, sharing the early clarinet’s secrets with many a student (modern and specialist, alike).

I asked Eric some questions a while back for the Harmonia blog. His answers were terrific and gave some insight into how he came to earn his prominence.

He’s a fine musician with a versatile background.
