Howard Blake Clarinet Concerto

Due to be released in September, this new recording of Howard Blake's clarinet concerto is with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, conducted by Sir Neville Marriner.

The album is named THE BARBER OF NEVILLE/ Woodwind concertos by Howard Blake/ Conducted by Sir Neville Marriner. The joke is that Howard and Neville had the same barber in London for many years without realising it and it was their barber, Jean-Marie Provost, who introduced them. Another customer of Jean-Marie's was Neville's son, Andrew Marriner, principal clarinet of the LSO, whose long-standing desire to record Howard's clarinet concerto is now superbly fulfilled. The splendid cover photo was taken by Clive Barda in the actual barber shop.
