As part of our 20th anniversary celebrations, Clarinet Classics is delighted to release Clarinet Chamber Music by Paul Harris – A Musical Celebration.
Paul Harris is well-known internationally as a composer and writer, with over 600 publications to his name. This world-premiere recording brings together a unique selection from both his serious and light-hearted compositions. The CD is rich in lyrical and melodic content, including a variety of instrumentation and enjoying the additional bonus of voice and narrator.
This is the second in the new Clarinet Classics series devoted to composers of today.
The artistic director, Victoria Soames Samek, a close friend of the composer, brings her unique and personal interpretation to the recording, accompanied by her duo partner Michael Bell, plus Robert Hardy, soprano Karen Radcliffe, Kimberly Easter and East Winds.
Recorded under the direction of the composer, this CD will be valued by clarinet players and music lovers all around the world. Don’t miss the added bonus of a live interview between Victoria Soames Samek and Paul Harris on www.clarinetclassics.com/home/media.htm.
“What is clear from this CD is that Harris has a knack of being able to shake lovely melodies out of his sleeve almost at will...and to sew them together into attractive lyrical bundles that are bound to please all but the most 'hardline' audiences. Though Harris's music can seldom be described as virtuosic or even likely to cause any professional to break into too much of a sweat, he is treated to sterling silver performances by all involved”
