Rui Travasso clarinet

The album features a range of relatively recent repertoire. French composer Henri Tomasi’s Sonatine Attique is said to have been inspired by a night under the Greek stars near the Parthenon in Athens. The clarinet’s agile, jovial side is contrasted with sinuous, haunting passages. We hear a finely-crafted Sonata for Clarinet Solo by Dutch composer Rudolf Escher, who was influenced by the music of Debussy, Ravel and Mahler, and the apparently effortless Monolog No. 3 by Swedish composer Erland von Koch, who was influenced by Bartók, Sibelius, Grieg and Hindemith.

There are more overt tributes to other composers, too: Gordon Jacob’s Five Pieces for Solo Clarinet include a lively, affectionate tribute to J.S. Bach, and contemporary Hungarian composer Béla Kóvacs is known for his set of Hommages to an array of different composers, from which we hear the dazzling Hommage à M. Falla. Other contemporary works include the chant-based Antiphona V, ‘Ave Maria’ by Norwegian composer Henrik Ødegaard, and the intricate Sonatina by Portuguese composer Sérgio Azevedo. The Italian Giovanni Mattaliano is first and foremost a clarinettist, and his Zeta World is the perfect conclusion to a recital of solo clarinet music: a succinct piece of breathtaking technique and irresistible good humour.
