Colin Lawson (clarinet), Francis Pott (piano)
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.
World premiere recordings of pieces by Williams, Somervell, Oberthur, Lloyd, German, Walthew, Pratt, Holbrooke, Greaves, Yuille-Smith, Carse, Lovelock and Dunhill.
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.
Clarinet Classics is proud to present a second solo disc from the period performance specialist and eminent historian Colin Lawson.
