Very smooth and subtle and deeply musical

Afternoon Concert

BBC Radio 3, Kate Molleson

Kate MollesonThe following quotation comes from ‘s introduction to the BBC Radio 3 Afternoon Concert broadcast in December 2018 of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto from the National Centre for the Performing Arts, Beijing. Robert Plane was the soloist with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, during the orchestra’s debut tour of China in 2012.

This next piece features the orchestra’s superb Principal Clarinettist Robert Plane. He makes one of my favourite orchestral clarinet sounds of any orchestra, anywhere really, very smooth and subtle and deeply musical.
