Phibbs and Mozart Clarinet Concertos
SIGCD578 | July 2019 release
Mark van de Wiel joins the Philharmonia Orchestra under Christopher Warren-Green in the premiere recording of Joseph Phibbs Clarinet Concerto, praised by The Sunday Times following its UK debut as a work that will surely be performed all over the world.
Following a long friendship between composer and soloist, Phibbs and van de Wiel collaborated to create this stunning and virtuosic new work for the clarinet and orchestra, which features a thrilling cadenza at the end of the first movement. It is paired with a scintillating live concert-recording of Mozarts timeless Concerto for Basset Clarinet in A Major, K. 622, performed with the London Chamber Orchestra.
