Clarinettist Nadia Wilson’s debut CD Clarinet Fantasies, with composer and pianist Martin Butler, celebrates music for clarinet and piano by twentieth-century British composers Arnold Bax, Joseph Horovitz, John Ireland and Martin Butler.
“The Ireland is a classic British masterpiece for clarinet and piano and was an obvious choice for the CD; it’s a real duo with virtuosic, exciting and varied writing for both instruments, creating vivid sound worlds that envelop the listener.”
