Ireland: Sextet, Clarinet Trio / Maggini Quartet, et al

Performers Ensemble

Notes & Reviews:

A composition pupil of Stanford and recognised as an outstanding talent by Parry, John Ireland was inspired as a student by the music of Beethoven, Brahms and Elgar, and later by Debussy, Ravel and the early Stravinsky. This recording features the genial, Brahmsian 1898 'Sextet' for clarinet, French horn and string quartet, unheard in public until 1960, and a reconstruction by the Canadian clarinettist and clarinet maker Stephen Fox of the 'Clarinet Trio' of 1912-14. Also included are Robert Plane's transcription for clarinet and piano of Ireland's very popular piano prelude 'The Holy Boy', written on Christmas Day 1913, and one of Ireland's finest and most beautifully crafted chamber works, the 'Fantasy Sonata' for clarinet and piano (1943).
