'... a lovely expansive open sound ...'

Première Rhapsodie - Som Howie, David Howie. © 2016 Cala Records Ltd

There's something for everyone on this debut CD featuring young Australian clarinettist Som Howie with his father David on piano. Of all the discs I've reviewed, this is the one I'm most enthusiastic about. It's an amazingly demanding recital and I have no reservations about any part of it.

The disc opens with Debussy's Première rhapsodie — one of the best known pieces in the repertoire, and you won't get a better performance than this...
