Clarinet Concerto in C minor Op.31
Down 15. 1st of Finzi's 3 entries.
A work of infectious lyricism from quintessentially British composer Finzi. Building on his charming bagatelles for clarinet, Finzi composed his Clarinet Concerto after the war, and it now stands among his best remembered works. It was premiered at the Three Choirs Festival in 1949, taking place that year in Hereford. Sadly, within just a couple of years, Finzi was struck by Hodgkin's Diesease, and he died in 1956, aged 55.
