Roger Heaton – clarinet        Stephen Pruslin – piano        The Kreutzer Quartet

Following the outstanding success of his previous disc for Clarinet Classics – New Music for Clarinets, Roger Heaton brings together for this landmark recording, an exciting and innovative programme by three of Britain’s outstanding composers of the last fifty years. All these works are receiving their first CD recording.

Heaton is joined by Stephen Pruslin who is the dedicatee and first performer of all the works involving piano. Pruslin shares his first hand experience further in his illuminating liner notes. This highly important disc will be treasured by 20th century music enthusiasts, and those curious to see what Britain’s three outstanding composers have contributed to the clarinet repertoire.

Maxwell Davies’ fiendish Hymnos – a real tour de force for both players.

Birtwistle’s Clarinet Quintet – a first recording of one of Birtwistle’s masterpieces of chamber music.

Goehr’s famous Paraphrase on Monteverdi’s Combatimento di Tancredi e Clorinda.

“A stunning disc.”
BBC Music Magazine
