IMEP NAMUR CLARINET CHOIR VOLTANO CUPER PALERMO
Many opera composers wanted to give the clarinet an importance equal to that of the voice. This album features hits from the Italian romantic opera from, among others, La Traviata, Rigoletto, Cavalleria Rusticana, and adapted for a clarinet choir. If these operas have inspired many adaptations and arrangements, it is to meet the need, once the curtain down, to relive at home the thrills of the operatic scene, when the record did not exist yet. IMEP's Clarinet Choir was founded by Jean-Luc Votano. This clarinetist, established at the age of just 23 at the time of the Cypres recording of Concertos for Clarinet in 2006, is today also a renowned teacher. Lyrical and festive, the Clarinetti all’Opera programme inaugurates the Cypres-Imep collection, which will be guided by the desire to offer an essential experience to young musicians, in the company of professional soloists, in the conception, recording and dissemination of unique programmes.
