David Griffiths clarinet
Svetlana Bogosavljevic cello
Ian Munro piano
The musicians of Ensemble Liaison bring together expertise gleaned from years of study at some of the world’s greatest musical institutions, in the United States, Russia and Italy. In their hands, the clarinet trio is an instrument of brilliant colour and boundless imagination.
Beethoven’s B-flat Trio is a joyous remnant of a time when woodwind instruments were an exciting new novelty, while Ian Munro’s work written especially for Ensemble Liaison, brings the clarinet trio into the modern day. Completing the program is the trio’s own arrangement of Igor Frolov’s Concert Fantasy on classic Gershwin numbers.
For this performance, Ensemble Liaison is pleased to welcome Ian Munro as guest pianist in place of Timothy Young.
