Programme Note

In a programme rich in musical heritage and contemporary composition this concert features the world première of Tom Randle’s jazz-inspired Sonata for Clarinet and Piano. With movement titles like ‘Bop's yer Uncle’ and Fugue-etta 'Bout it!", you can tell we are in for fun. Taylor’s A June Cantilena for Clarinet is a lyrical piece of subtle and evocative depth while Clara Schumann’s Four Songs from Sechs Lieder, Op. 13 are beautifully adapted for clarinet. Airs and Arabesques reveals the clarinet’s expressive and technical range through five contrasting movements.

The concert concludes with Francis Poulenc’s Sonata for Clarinet and Piano; one of the composer’s last completed pieces, it has become a standard classic of the repertoire a work which weaves a powerful line, between melancholy and exuberance.

Poppy Beddoe has established an enviable reputation as a soloist and chamber musician, with her debut album Soliloquy receiving high praise and her duo partner this afternoon, Timothy End, has many prestigious awards to his credit, including the Pianist Prize at the Wigmore Hall Song Competition.
