Music for Clarinet & Piano Volume 1
Arthur Campbell (clarinet) & Helen Marlais (piano)
Presenting works by German, French and British composers of the 19th and 20th centuries, Arthur Campbell and Helen Marlais exhibit the enormous dynamic and sonic spectrum of the clarinet. At the heart of this recording are the late works of the three French composers Claude Debussy, Camille Saint-Saëns and Francis Poulenc, who demonstrate equally the gentle and velvety character of the clarinet and the powerful, sometimes penetrating sound of the instrument. The increasing virtuosity which composers demanded from the clarinet during the course of the nineteenth to the twentieth centuries is impressively demonstrated in the final movements of the works on this disc by Robert Schumann, Francis Poulenc and Malcolm Arnold. Arthur Campbell was born in Canada and studied at the Northwestern University in Evans ton, Illinois, USA, where he was taught by the renowned clarinettist and pedagogue Robert Marcellus. He has won numerous international and national competitions, including the International Clarinet Competition and the National Music Festival of Canada. An internationally sought-after clarinet virtuoso, Arthur Campbell has toured throughout the USA, Canada, Europe and Asia. He regularly presents international masterclasses at universities, conservatoires and conventions. Arthur Campbell was appointed professor at the Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids Michigan, where he has been teaching a class of clarinet students from across the globe.

Maximiliano Martín (clarinet) & Inocencio Negrín (piano)
"Languorous and brilliant by turns, this star clarinettist's recital is a delight" Gramophone
“…Maximiliano Martín, has an attractive tone, reliable intonation and nimble technique. …for clarinet buffs there's an early Fantasia by Nielsen; two pieces by the 20th-century clarinet virtuoso and teacher Miguel Yuste Moreno, a Spanish-flavoured 'Picturesque Caprice' and a tuneful 'Melodic Study'; and a 19th-century fantasy on Donizetti by an earlier Spanish clarinettist, Antonio Romero y Andía.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2006 ****
“An attractive recital from the charismatic Spanish clarinettist Maximiliano Martín (currently principal of the SCO) made the more so by superbly clean, clear articulation, balanced by ravishingly long-breathed lyrical phrasing and the highly sympathetic partnership provided by Inocencio Negrín.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2006
