 Anyone familiar with Jurg Frey's clarinet music?
Author: seabreeze

The latest issue of The New Yorker magazine features an article from their music critic about Swiss composer/clarinetist Jurg Frey. I confess I had never heard of Frey before, and a search on this list back many years does not mention him. Evidently he was a student of Swiss clarinetist Thomas Friedli and is quite active today in Switzerland and other parts of Europe. Is anyone familiar with either his compositions or his clarinet playing?

Ah ha ! Excellent. Just read that one too and went to listen to the extract on the site given. I found the composition fascinating and actually more "listenable" than a lot of jazz or classical pieces that are to distracting to my poor brain ; it's constantly analysing and and making comparisons/connections with other pieces and makes true listening hard work. Amazing that I have to rely on the New Yorker, from way across the pond, to find out about someone just "across the street".
