Sean Shibe, Julian Bliss

Sean Shibe (guitar) and Julian Bliss (clarinet) at the Dreel Halls, Anstruther. With excerpts from the Scottish lute manuscripts, plus Oswald, Maxwell Davies, Reich, Wolfe, Lang.

Sean Shibe, guitar, & Julian Bliss, clarinet, join forces at the East Neuk Festival in an eclectic recital from Bach to Reich at the Dreel Halls, Anstruther.

Steve Reich loves few composers more than JS Bach, so Sean Shibe and Julian Bliss takes that passion as inspiration for pairing ancient and modern with works for solo guitar and solo clarinet. On acoustic guitar Sean plays both Bach and the gorgeous traditional music of Fife's own James Oswald, then contrasts it with a modern classic on electric guitar, Reich's mesmerising Electric Counterpoint. Julian introduces short atmospheric works for solo clarinet from France including Messiaen's famous Abime des oiseaux, the third movement of his Quartet for the End of Time.
