Xavier Lefèvre – “A Revolutionary Tutor” Clarinet Sonatas, vol. 1

£0.50£6.50

Following on from Colin Lawson’s highly successful recordings, to hear these sonatas in the instrumentation of clarinet and cello as they were originally written, gives listeners the opportunity to relish the clarity of the clarinet melodies complimented by the cello’s simple harmony. Often heard with an over embellished piano harmony, these recordings are a revelation and fill a vital gap in the recorded catalogue.

Colin Lawson – C clarinet Claire Thirion – cello
