The cultural history of the clarinet is closely associated with 19th century musical tradition, Debussy being particularly influential. This CD includes works by him and also members of the Group of Six, Honegger, Milhaud and Poulenc who turned away from Impressionism and lead French music into the modern age. Here this exciting phase of music history is heard in all its glory.
