Janet Hilton celebrates her career of more than 50 years with a full CD of music for solo clarinet. The music for unaccompanied clarinet is rich and varied. This disk celebrates the wonderful sonority of the clarinet, the instrument whose colours and expressiveness are compared by many to those of the human voice.
‘Since I first heard her as a student, I have regarded Janet Hilton as our finest clarinettist’
Michael Kennedy in THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

TRip by Chris Jolly (CSCP001 & CSCP015)
TRIp was originally written in 2011 for ReedPlay; a trio of alto saxophone, bass clarinet and piano. The piece was re-worked in 2012 for the World Saxophone Congress in St Andrews with the bass clarinet part altered for baritone saxophone and a new middle section added. TRIp is based on a 2 bar groove which emerges from a driving and unstable opening which incorporates extended techniques.
