Nigel Westlake and David Bollard play music for clarinet by Australian composers Peter Sculthorpe, Ross Edwards, Mark Isaacs, Miriam Hyde, Margaret Sutherland and Don Banks. Both performers were members of the Australia Ensemble when this recording was made (Westlake has since departed to concentrate on composition). It was the first CD of Australian clarinet ever made, and contains two gems from the repertoire in the works by Don Banks and Margaret Sutherland.

REVIEWS

'The contrasts of style on the disc are considerable, but somehow it all seems to work together, producing a likeable and satisfying experience as a whole'
Roger Covell, Sydney Morning Herald, March 1992


'... brings together two performers of powerful personality with brilliant technique and limitless colour-resource ... the CD is sensitively recorded and engineered ... Sleeve notes are excellent.'
Peter Platt, Sounds Australian, Winter 1992


'(Sculthorpe) A beauty ... (Sutherland) ... sublime melodic invention ... (Hyde) ... almost pure flowing lyricism ... (Banks) ... a delicious closer to a collection that should appeal to both performers and repertoire fans.'
Stephen Ellis, Fanfare (USA), December 1993
