Entrance free with a voluntary donation towards church funds
An informal evening with David Russell, local singer, pianist and composer, Terry Stanton, a talented clarinettist originally from Selsey, now living in Australia, and guest Soprano Alison Mobbs from Fishbourne
The varied programme will include Crusell’s Clarinet Concerto No. 2; Baermann’s famous “Adagio”; Paul Reade’s “A Victorian Kitchen Garden Suite”; Acker Bilk’s “Stranger on the Shore”; and Schubert’s “Shepherd on the Rock” for Soprano, Clarinet & Piano.
Bernhard Crusell was a Finnish virtuoso clarinettist of the early 19th Century, and wrote truly beautiful music for the instrument. Both he & Heinrich Baermann were famous throughout Europe in their day. English composer Paul Reade also composed the ‘Antiques Roadshow’ theme, and Schubert’s delightful & highly original “Shepherd on the Rock” features a stunning coloratura interplay between the clarinet & the soprano….not to be missed!
