Michael Collins clarinet; Michael McHale piano

Brahms, Poulenc and more


  • Michael Collins clarinet

Few players have done more to raise their instrument’s profile than Michael Collins, who joins us at Wigmore Hall for a three-concert series this season.

His consummate musicianship and artistic eloquence are directed in this recital to some of the clarinet’s finest chamber compositions, including the delicious pairing of Brahms’s amiable Clarinet Sonata in E flat and the Clarinet Sonata by Herbert Howells.

        • Clarinet Sonata
  • Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)
        • Clarinet Sonata in E flat major Op. 120 No. 2
  • Interval
  • Claude Debussy (1862-1918)
        • Première rapsodie
  • Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921)
        • Clarinet Sonata in E flat major Op. 167
  • Francis Poulenc (1899-1963)
        • Sonata for clarinet and piano
  • Encore
  • John Field (1782-1837)
