Sir Mark Elder

Sergio Castelló López, Clarinet

Ravel’s Spanish-Basque heritage is heard to striking effect in the exotically charged Rapsodie Espagnole and in his orchestral showpiece Bolero, a work originally intended for performance by Ida Rubinstein’s ballet troupe in 1928. Debussy’s Rhapsody began life as a Conservatoire test piece for clarinet, while Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, originally for solo piano, was given new life by Ravel’s magnificent arrangement in which form it is better known.
