Llanto, New Clarinet Concerto by Lyell Creswell

Martin premieres Llanto (Lament), written especially for him by Lyell Cresswell whose own track record with concertos is formidable ­- including a commission for the BBC Proms. The drama of pitching soloist against orchestra inspires him to compose powerfully dramatic music. He will be conducted by the wonderful German conductor Clemens Schuldt. 4-5 May 2017 is a date for your diaries.
