‘Music you can't ignore’ is how The Guardian has referred to the music of the Flemish composer Wim Henderickx. His new Clarinet Concerto dedicated to tonight’s performer, Annelien Van Wauwe, is bound to be just as attention-grabbing and features a typical engagement with Eastern music and philosophy. Prepare to be beguiled. Martyn Brabbins has couched this World Premiere in the gorgeous, impressionistic sound-world of French music: Debussy’s famous depiction of an ever-changing seascape and his ‘march’ based upon a traditional Scottish tune; and Dame Sarah Connolly singing Chausson’s exquisite song-cycle of heartbreak and longing. An evening to ravish the ear.
