Joseph Horovitz, born in Vienna in May 1926, found refuge in Britain with his family after Hitler's seizure of power in Austria. His Sonatina reflects the wonderful invention and imagination of his compositions. Daniel Ottensamer's recital also includes Zemlinsky's Fantasies on Poems of Richard Dehmel, conceived for solo piano in 1898 and arranged for clarinet and piano by James Breed.
