Robert Plane, Philip Dukes and Huw Watkins – unerring control

The Guardian, Rian Evans

“In this performance of works [by Huw Watkins] spanning a decade, it was the most recent pieces that were conveyed with greatest expressivity and huge emotional intensity …… Speak Seven Seas for clarinet – played by Robert Plane, with Dukes on viola and Watkins on piano – had an apparently easy ebb and flow, but its dramatic tension was manipulated with the same unerring control.”

The concert, comprising performance of works by Huw Watkins spanning a decade, was recorded by BBC Radio 3 for future broadcast on Hear and Now.
