Clare Howick’s interest in 20th-century British violin repertoire has resulted in a number of premières and recordings. Her début disc, Cyril Scott: Sonata Lyrica and Other Works for Dutton, was Editor’s Choice in Gramophone magazine. Subsequent discs for Naxos of violin works by British Women Composers, Cyril Scott’s Violin Sonatas Nos. 1–3, and British Music for Violin and Piano have received Editor’s Choice in Classical Music magazine, Recording of the Month on MusicWeb International, and Recommended Recording on BBC Radio 3 Record Review. Howick has an extensive concerto repertoire, including Patterson’s Violin Concerto No. 2 (‘Serenade’) which was composed for her, and has performed with orchestras including the Philharmonia Orchestra. In addition to her solo and chamber performances, at venues including the Royal Festival Hall and Wigmore Hall, she has broadcast on the BBC, in the US, Canada and New Zealand. Clare Howick gratefully acknowledges the loan of the ‘Maurin’ Stradivarius 1718 from the Royal Academy of Music for this recording. This violin was played by Frederick Grinke, the dedicatee of the Leighton and Jacob concertos, for the première performances of these works in 1953.
