Robert Plane returns to the studio, this time to record 'The Hungarian Clarinet' for Champs Hill

Robert is in the studio today and tomorrow, to record  ‘The Hungarian Clarinet’ in collaboration Alec Frank-Gemmill, David Adams and the Gould Piano Trio. This recording for Champs Hill Records explores the huge variety of music for clarinet to have emerged from Hungary in the past 100 years.

Bartok’s Contrasts sits intriguingly alongside Tibor Serly’s Chamber Folk Music for the same combination of clarinet, violin and piano. Famous for completing Bartok’s Viola Concerto, Serly was a fine composer in his own right and this première recording will bring to light a piece brimming with melody and virtuosity which affectionately embraces the Hollywood style. This links with the inclusion of Miklos Rozsa’s Sonatina for solo clarinet, a composer renowned in Hollywood who also had a successful ‘serious’ strand to his career. Dohnanyi’s epic sextet and Kurtag’s intriguing Homage to Schumann complete the highly charged and passionate picture.

‘The Hungarian Clarinet’ will be an interesting addition to Robert’s extensive discography.
