(1901 – 1953): Centenary Tribute
Known to many through his reputation, but to much fewer through his playing, this historic CD gives an opportunity to hear one of Britain’s most distinguished clarinettists. Dating from the first half of the 20th Century the recordings of the Bliss Quintet with the Griller Quartet and “Caoine” by Stanford, provide a fascinating insight into this major musical figure.
- Bliss – Clarinet Quintet
- Stanford – ‘Caoine‘, from his Sonata
- Gordon Jacob – Quintet
- Rawsthorne – Quartet
‘I cannot imagine a better tribute to a fine artist than the wonderful musicianship on display throughout this issue.’
