MÁSSON, A.: Clarinet Music - Blik / Sonatina / Seasons / 3 Bagatelles / Fantasia / Trio for Clarinet, Cello and Piano / Wind Quintet (Jóhannesson)

Áskell Másson’s unique and distinctive expressive fingerprints are nowhere better encountered than in his music for clarinet, here played by his great champion Einar Jóhannesson. Blik explores diverse clarinet techniques, not least multiphonics, and continues to be one of his best-loved works whilst the Sonatina evokes sombre darkness as well as blithe lyricism. The unusual Seasons features the Darabuka, or Goblet Drum. The Trio for clarinet, cello and piano was written as a companion piece for Beethoven’s Clarinet Trio, Op. 11 and is a haunting dream-dialogue into which Masson has woven Icelandic folk-song.
