"... a pleasing mixture of light and virtuosic ... can be enjoyed by all those whose tastes are centered on tonal, melodic, well-proportioned music ... nothing in the recital is without interest or indeed a sense of humour and warmth ... sound quality is very good ..."
- MusicWeb International

"... obviously a clarinet lover’s feast, but it wouldn’t be right to conclude without acknowledging the excellent work of pianist Warren Lee. The piano parts are certainly not mere accompaniments; these are duo works in the full sense of the term and Lee proves himself Simon’s equal partner in every way. Very strongly recommended."
- Fanfare

This fascinating and wide-ranging programme of 20th century works for clarinet and piano features Andrew Simon on clarinet accompanied on several selections by pianist Warren Lee. The album includes the jazz and folk inspired Two Dances for Andrew Simon by Romanian composer Şerban Nichifor, followed by a selection of pieces by Joseph Horovitz with whom both artists worked closely prior to this recording. Lutosławski’s Dance Preludes is based on folk songs from Northern Poland and the recital concludes with Arnold Cooke’s Hindemith-inspired Sonata and Malcolm Arnold’s accessible Sonatina.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
