Mathias Concertos for Clarinet, Harp, and Piano


Mathias Concertos for Clarinet, Harp, and Piano


"...three of Mathias's colourful, approachable concertos in excellent recordings made in the 1970s. ...the impact of the opening of the Clarinet Concerto had me marvelling not only at the vivid immediacy and sense of presence of the recording but at the compelling imagination of the soloist....the Harp Concerto prompts Mathias to create evocative, highly characteristic shimmering textures...superbly played by the work's dedicatee, Osian Ellis...Mathias wrote his Piano Concerto No.3 for himself to play, and more than ever the outer movements bring jazzily syncopated writing like Walton with a difference, here incisively played by Peter Katin." Edward Greenfield, Gramophone *** PENGUIN GUIDE 2010
