The leading clarinettist has championed numerous British works and commissioned others. The work by Arthur Bliss was first performed in 1932 by Frederick Thurston and the Kutcher Quartet and, like the choral symphony Morning Heroes, memorialises the composer’s clarinettist brother Francis Kennard, killed during the First World War.

  • Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
      • String Trio in C minor Op. 9 No. 3
  • Arthur Bliss (1891-1975)
