Clarinet Classics Various CD
(1901 - 1953): Centenary Tribute
Known to many through his reputation, but to much fewer through his playing, this historic CD gives an opportunity to hear one of Britain's most distinguished clarinettists. Dating from the first half of the 20th Century the recordings of the Bliss Quintet with the Griller Quartet and "Caoine" by Stanford, provide a fascinating insight into this major musical figure.
Also included on this disc are performances from Thurston's widow, the eminent clarinettist, Thea King, with the Aeolian Quartet.
