Julian Bliss and the Carducci Quartet pair two highly contrasting works – Johannes Brahms’s Clarinet Quintet and David Bruce’s Gumboots.

Bruce’s piece pivots on the contrast between its elegaic first movement and the five dances that follow it, and Bliss and the Carduccis relish the expressive variety – The Times

Clarinettist Julian Bliss and the Carducci Quartet are mot sensitive and elegaic – Financial Times

[Bliss] flits seamlessly between regular and bass clarinet. The finale’s joyous barrage could almost be out of a Falla ballet – The Guardian

Here’s a double delight. First, an engaging new work that deserves a place in the Chamber repertory; second, a passionate account of Brahms’ Clarinet Quintet which can hold its head high against starrier competition – Gramophone
