Clarinet Recital: Cox, Nicholas - BAX, A. / FISKE, R. / HAMILTON, I. / WOOD, H. / BENNETT, R.R. (The Thurston Connection)

British music for the clarinet was hugely indebted to the elite interpreters who inspired this important repertoire. They included Frederick Thurston, who first performed three of the works on this recording. Bax’s Sonata, much admired and imbued with Celtic folklore, is heard in a version that restores the manuscript’s original phrasing. The pieces by Roger Fiske and Iain Hamilton are heard in première recordings, while Richard Rodney Bennett’s Duo Concertante was commissioned by the eminent soloist in this recital, Nicholas Cox.
