Samuel Coleridge-TaylorClarinet Quintet in F sharp minor, Op.10


Colin Lawson – clarinet

Revolutionary Drawing Room

Programme Note

Colin Lawson joins the Revolutionary Drawing Room in this performance of the rarely-heard Clarinet Quintet by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, composed as a result of a challenge from his composition teacher, Sir Charles Stanford, who said that no composer could write a clarinet quintet without being influenced by Brahms.  Within 2 months, Coleridge-Taylor had done it, producing an undeniable masterpiece which deserves to be performed more often.
