The English Romantics

The English Romantics


This recording brings together a wonderfully rich and romantic programme of rare quintessentially English repertoire for clarinet, bassoon and piano.

Soames’ style is in the best English tradition, wonderfully supple and often downright breath-taking, Laurence Perkins similarly evokes English woodwind playing at its best supported by pianist John Flinders.International Record Review




World Premiere Recordings by Lloyd, Howells & Hurlstone

This CD promotes the wonderful sound of clarinet, bassoon and piano in a programme which is both romantic in style and rich in sound.  With composers including the only two clarinet works by William Hurlstone, who died tragically young, alongside World Premiere recordings of two rare works by Herbert Howells and the glorious Trio by Charles Harfrd Lloyd. This is a recording which has broad listening appeal for new audiences to the wind world and indeed for players considering performing this wonderful repertoire.

William Hurlstone Trio in G minor, Four Characteristic Pieces; Herbert Howells A Near Minuet, Minuet: Grace for a Fresh Egg; Charles Harford Lloyd Trio

‘Victoria Soames and her colleagues should be commended for their assiduous scholarship and research in bringing this hitherto obscure music, some of which is still unpublished, to our attention.’
