Francis Poulenc: Sonata For Clarinet And Piano FP 184 (excerpt) With H. Ferreira On Clarinet And D. Bekker On Piano
A cartoonish creation
Francis Poulenc is primarily known for his ballets and operas. Nonetheless, he was a skilled composer in many other regards, too. Poulenc’s work for clarinet and piano is playful, quick and responsive. You’d be forgiven for thinking this had been taken from an episode of Loony Toons, where Bugs Bunny is being chased by Elmer Fudd! Enjoy this sprightly work by the French composer.
