Yoshinori has played Peter Eaton International clarinets since 2006. "The warm sound of my Peter Eaton clarinets fits perfectly with my orchestra, blending well with other instruments. They also let me play even the softest solo passages so that they project well to the audience in the back row of a large concert hall. It is fascinating that with Peter Eaton clarinets I can play music like the way I speak my own language, helped by the clarity of articulation they offer".
