Duo Imaginaire: Old New Borrowed Blue

Debussy - Beethoven - Micháns - Granados - Backofen - Rossini - Lancen

Clarinet and harp are an appealing combination with which new works can be discovered and also newly discovered. The Duo Imaginaire - John Corbett, Clarinet and Bassethorn & Sabine Seiler, Harp - illustrates, with this recording, the unique effect of the combination of their instruments, beyond the boundaries of genres and epochs. The result is a sound image rich in facets, raising the question as to why more music has not been written for this combination, or why the transcription did not find its audience sooner. — This CD version represents a Premiere Recording.
In the year 2007 a small café on the Place Fernand Cocq in the district of Ixelles, Brussels was to serve as patron-saint to the rather unconventional combination of clarinet and harp: Café Imaginaire. From that moment on, the idea was born to further develope and establish these two instruments as duo in the concerthall. The composers Andrew Digby, Gordon Kampe, Manfred Stahnke, James Wishart and Frido ter Beek were among the first to compose works specifically for Duo Imaginaire.
