In early November, Molinari performed La chute d’Icare for clarinet and Time and Motion, a study for bass clarinet solo with the Israel contemporary Players Ensemble as a part of the season of Swiss culture in Israel. Molinari said that on the eve of his performance in Israel, he received numerous emails urging him to cancel for political reasons. “I think this is absurd. I totally disagree with the idea of a cultural boycott” said Molinari. “Music is one of very few things that can unite people.”
