Robert Plane, who has developed a reputation for championing English clarinet music, joins the renowned Gould Piano Trio for this colourful programme. The first half pairs Ireland's inventive Phantasie with a new work by pianist and composer Huw Watkins, whose music is characterised by a warmth and lyricism that brings out the distinctive colours of the instruments for which he writes. Also rich in colour and detail is Messiaen's iconic Quartet for the End of Time, which brings this recital to a contemplative close.
