Work Overview

"Nigel Sabin's Postcards from France, for clarinet and viola, is entirely delightful. Evoking a train journey to Paris, this is highly evocative music that is also witty and agile with a rhythmic zest that is irresistible." Mary Nemet Strings Nov 2003

"Nigel Sabin's Postcards from France (1991) returns the theme to the pictorial and the mood to the joyous. Sabin's writing for clarinet is personal and evocative, and here it teams with the viola to create an extraordinary duet of simple, weaving lines evoking a bumpy train-ride, with some fragments that sound like quotations of music heard in transit." Chris Read http://www.realtimearts.net/earbash January 2004

"Sabin's work is an engaging composition and its unfussy style should win it many admirers." Tony Way The Age September 1994
