French Touch – La crème de la crème” of French repertoire for clarinet quartet

“General de Gaulle famously described Belgium as a country“ invented by the English to annoy the
French”. As a group of Belgians revisiting some of France’s cherished musical pieces, CLARNIVAL offers
the crème de la crème of French cultural landscape, with their own unique touch.

Clarnival proposes a journey from gypsy jazz with Kosma through tango thanks to Escaich. Taking a detour with the traditional folk music of Occitania with Brotto-Lopez, to Brittany with Mathey adding a twist, an older patrimonial song, Rossignolet du Bois, with the participation of Camille Bauer, their very own femme fatale.

Winner of the competition “Prix de la Fondation Horlait Dapsens”, you’ll hear the clarinet in all its versatility by CLARNIVAL in their second album – French Touch, “La crème de la crème” of French repertoire for clarinet quartet.
