Subj: RE: [kl] Poulenc Sonata
Date: Thu, 26 Apr 2001 21:42:44 -0400

I did this sonata in my second year of university. I have a recording of
the sonata that was given to me by my clarinet teacher at the time, Greg
Blackman, I will check who is playing it and where he got it(if this is any
help). Although I have a vague recollection that it is him playing it.
Incidently, I was marked down in my exam for playing this piece because it
is a final recital piece. I believe if I hadn't have been ready for it my
teacher wouldn't have suggested that I play it.

Subject: [kl] Poulenc Sonata

While checking my bedside radio alarm a couple of nights ago, I caught the
last movement of the Poulenc sonata and part of the next to last. The
clarinet solo was played by Gary Gray. The section I heard seemed a nice
interpretation, beyond what sounded to me like some rather overly-hard
attacks on some of the notes. (Given that this radio is not of terribly
good quality and isn't connected to an outside antenna, I don't know if my
observation is valid.)

I'm not familiar with the artist, and don't recall seeing his name mentioned
on klarinet while I've been reading. I checked Amazon for the CD. They
list it with the unreasuring advisory that delivery takes 4-6 weeks and
sometimes the publisher is temporarily out of print. Any information about
the artist or this CD? It had several other clarinet/piano works. Is it
worth the annoyance that ordering it will probably take. <g>

Thanks, Jim
