Time Pieces, Op. 43: IV. Introduction: Andante molto - Allegro energico

Michael Collins

Time Pieces for Clarinet and Piano, Op. 43: IV. Andante molto-Allegro energico - Robert Muczynski 

Clarinet: Michael Collins
Piano: Michael McHale

A while back I went to see Michael Collins (with Michael McHale) at the Wigmore Hall in London, and he performed some selections from his new album, The Virtuoso Clarinet Vol. 2. This piece is dazzling and incredible to listen to, and a bit tricky to play!

The Christening

The Christening from “Maleficent” - James Newton Howard

This is my favourite piece from the Maleficent soundtrack. What an incredible film, and an equally incredible score!
