Notes & Reviews:

The Clarinet Quartet of the Belgian National Orchestra presents a lively program of instrumental adaptations. The program ranges from the light-heartedly atmospheric 'American' jazz suites of Terence Thompson and Louis Mortier and trad-jazz inflections of native Belgian Rik Pelckmans, to the ragtime of George Botsford (Black And white, 1908) and arrangements of songs from classic stage works by Gershwin, Rodgers and Bernstein.
