An Evening of Clarinet Delight

Andrew Simon and Warren Lee,
play both Brahms Clarinet Sonatas 
and works by Debussy and Saint Saens

"...[Andrew] is one of the finest players I’ve heard ...competitive with the best of the best.” - Jerry Dubins, Fanfare Magazine

"Flawless technique..." 
American Record Guide

“superb pianism… a wonderful sense of colour and impeccably controlled articulation” Straits Times

Friday, 16th December, 6pm

Debussy, Rhapsody no.1 for Clarinet and Piano

Brahms, Sonata for Clarinet and Piano in F minor, op. 120 no.1

Saint Saens, Clarinet Sonata in E Flat, op. 167

Brahms Sonata for Clarinet and Piano in E-flat, op. 120 no. 2

The Two Brahms Clarinet Sonatas were written in 1894. They are the last chamber works of Brahms and both masterpieces. Their richness is aptly summarized by a reviewer on Amazon: 
"the utmost attention to form and structure, thrilling polyphony, and, above all, beautiful melodies"
