Taking inspiration from the golden age of the evocatively titled Belle époque, clarinettist Annelien Van Wauwe makes her Pentatone debut with this CD of rapturous concertante music including the world-premiere recording of Manfred Trojahn’s Rhapsodie pour clarinette et orchestre. The longest work on the disc is Luciano Berio’s exquisite orchestration of Brahms’ late, autumnal masterpiece, his Clarinet Sonata Op 120 No 1.   Also included – and excerpted here – are  Debussy’s Première Rhapsodie and, both orchestrated by Jelle Tassyns, pieces by Pierné and Widor.
