Romantic classics for clarinet & piano
Including Schumann's Fantasiestücke and Weber's Grand Duo Concertant
Clapham Chamber Concerts presents the second concert in its special 10th anniversary season featuring CCC’s clarinettist, Jonathan Parkin, accompanied by his long-standing duo partner, pianist Sebastian Stanley. The recital will feature two classic favourites from the romantic repertoire for clarinet and piano.
Weber’s exciting Grand Duo Concertant, one of the earliest and most significant works written for clarinet and piano, is a virtuosic showcase for both performers. Enter into a dream-like state with Schumann’s Fantasy Pieces, which follow, displaying some of the most gentle and poetic writing of this wonderful composer.
The second half of the concert features two beautiful, slightly overlooked works from the twentieth century English repertoire. What better way to spend an Autumn evening than to come along to hear the mellow sound world of the Parkin-Stanley duo at the atmospheric St. Paul’s Church.
