Roger Heaton – clarinet        Stephen Pruslin – piano        The Kreutzer Quartet


Roger Heaton is a wold exponent in new music performance interpretation and is joined by the eminent Kreutzer Quartet and Stephen Pruslin who is the dedicatee and first performer of all the works involving piano. Together they make a powerful partnership. 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.”
