Latvian clarinetist Egīls Šēfers is praised by critics as a musician with delicately polished, visually enjoyable and expressive performance style. In addition to standard Classical and Romantic repertoire for clarinet, Mr. Šēfers specializes in merging elements of historical performance on 18th-century instruments with modern performance practice, as well as Latvian contemporary repertoire. During his studies Egīls began appearing on stages of major North American cities, the highlights of these concerts included a chamber music recital with Gidon Kremer and a solo recital in Glenn Gould studio in Toronto. His efforts were rewarded with an honorary citizenship of Dallas, Texas in 2003.

Šēfers has won numerous national and international solo and chamber music competitions. In 2012 and 2013 he received Latvian Great Music Award for his performances of Copland Concerto, Mozart Clarinet Quintet, Mozart Clarinet Concerto and Kalsons Clarinet Concerto. He was awarded the title Instrumentalist of the Year 2013 by the Latvian Radio 3 “Klasika” for his solo appearances. He regularly collaborates with Sinfonietta Riga, Liepaja Symphony Orchestra, Latvian National Symphony Orchestra, Spikeru String Quartet, and many leading Latvian and Scandinavian musicians. He is a passionate chamber musician and an active member of the Danish woodwind quintet Carion.
