Notes & Reviews:

The composers on Isn't This A Time? : American Music for Clarinet range from the iconic John Cage to specialists working with new clarinet techniques such as Eric Mandat, via the great William O. Smith (also known as jazz legend Bill Smith). There is a lot of variety here, within the context of a generally provocative and avant-garde collection. Ian Mitchell is one of Europe's foremost clarinetists, performing, recording and broadcasting regularly, and specializing in contemporary works. Director of the ensemble Gemini, he has received over 40 dedications and given many major world premieres.
