here’s another show featuring the clarinet (though not as clarinet-focused as the last post).  the two shows work well as a companion pieces, on a rainy good friday afternoon here.  it’s easter and spring is definitely here.

and such a nice line up too!  incidentally, airelle besson’s website shows that she’s coming to ireland on tour in october, including at the sugar club on leeson street (not yet on their webpage) and the pavilion in dun laoghaire.  book early & often, just like voting (actually, with ireland’s system of a single transferable vote in a multi-member constituency, when you vote, you do vote often, ha ha).

well, that was quite the afternoon, with two posts in as many hours.  about time, after a bit of a dry spell (been busy, yet again).  enjoy!

this is one of a number of ted curson shows that i downloaded from dime when, as always, there’s a flood of seeds & reseed after an artist dies.  r.i.p.  not having listened to any ted curson since, i thought it was time for a ‘ted curson day’ here in my home office, and so here’s this show for you to get things going.
