100 Years of the Simple-System Clarinet

In this valuable collection of music from the 19th and early 20th centuries, Colin Lawson surveys the music written for the simple system clarinet. From the 1850s right through to 1950, this was a favourite instrument in England and coincided with the English musical renaissance. With the clarinet as an instrument flourishing inspiring composers to write for the instruments, this was an immensely rich compositional period for the clarinet. Many of the works are recorded for the first time

This CD presents the opportunity to hear one of the world’s leading period clarinet performers playing a now unfamiliar clarinet in unusual repertory, that has become unjustly neglected. Combined with a full and informative booklet written by Colin Lawson, ensures these works can be enjoyed listeners and included by players in future recital programmes..
