Composer Mark Boden is composing a clarinet concerto for Rob, to be premiered in March 2018 with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in BBC Hoddinott Hall, Cardiff Bay.


Rarely has a pint tasted as good! Clarinet Concertos by Iain Hamilton, Ruth Gipps, Richard Walthew and John Ireland (Fantasy-Sonata with strings) all in the can after three wonderful days of recording with the fantastic BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Martyn Brabbins. I couldn’t have wished for more committed, accomplished and friendly colleagues. Producer/ engineer team of Matthew Bennett and Dave Rowell were on top form. Thanks to Champs Hill Records for making the whole thing happen and to the countless people who have contributed to bringing these hugely significant works back to light. ... See MoreSee Less
