Clariphonics at the Purcell Room

As part of their excellent recital for the Park Lane Group New Year Series 2009, clarinet quartet Clariphonics performed the world premiere of the piece commissioned from Robert, Glimpses of a Half-Forgotten Future. Both the recital and the piece received favourable reviews, with The Times having this to say:

Best of all was the world premiere of Glimpses of a half-forgotten future by the South African composer Robert Fokkens: sad, strange and scarcely five minutes’ worth of unquiet fragments that expressed more than anything else they had played.
