ANAM Recital: Cameron Smith (clarinet)

WEB_SMITH, Cameron
ANAM Recitals are an opportunity for each ANAM musician to make their own personal musical statement, through performance, repertoire and presentation.
A selection of masterworks from the clarinet repertoire, spanning the end of Romanticism to the dawn of the new music of the 20th century.

The turn of the 20th century was a time of immense change. A century of romantic thought was challenged by new and drastically divergent philosophies within a few short years. In my recital you will hear the end of Romanticism with a late Clarinet Sonata of Brahms (1894) contrasted with early 20th century works that showcase new compositional styles; from Neoclassicism to Impressionism to unashamed embraces of dissonance.

BRAHMS Clarinet Sonata no. 1 in F minor op. 120
STRAVINSKY 3 pieces for solo clarinet
MILHAUD Clarinet Sonatine op. 100
DEBUSSY Première rapsodie for clarinet and piano
