Songs : for clarinet and piano / Simon Reade.

Library shelf no. 788.62/REA 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

These songs have been recast for clarinet and piano and were given a memorable first performance by Luca Ferrini and Joze Kotar at the Tasmanian Composers Festival - March 4, 2016.

The four songs are all quite recent, two from my set of Michael Dransfield songs for alto voice and piano, two instrumental songs written more recently and originally for my own instrument, the 'cello.

The cycle is written 'hommage à Robert Schumann' in tribute to that great composer of both Lieder as well as wind chamber music.
