Davide Bandieri - clarinet
The pieces on this double-CD are evidence of Paul Hindemith’s love for
the clarinet, an instrument of which he was a keen amateur player and
for which he wrote a considerable amount of music.
The Clarinet Sonata, Quartet and Quintet were intended for the concert hall, while the other pieces were written for amateurs to be played in
more private settings, Hindemith’s mission being to create approachable music for as many people as possible.
In all these works Hindemith’s particular style shines through: from the strict neo-classicism, the “Neue Sachlichkeit” to vigorous expressionism,
all sharing his joy of invention and creation.
Played by Italian master clarinettist Davide Bandieri, who played solo clarinet in the Lucerne Festival Orchestra and Mahler Chamber Orchestra
conducted by Claudio Abbado. For this recording he secured the collaboration of such eminent instrumentalists as pianist Matteo Fossi,
violinist Duccio Ceccanti and cellist Vittorio Ceccanti.
