Jim and List--

gary Gray teaches at University of California Los Angeles. The CD is on the
Centaur label. While the CD is very good, there are many other recordings
of the works on the CD. While I do recommend the purchase of this CD, I
would not delay the purchase of other recordings more readily available. In
short, get the CD, but also consider other recordings.

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
