BELLE ÉPOQUE
FROM ANNELIEN VAN WAUWE

Taking inspiration from the golden age of the evocatively titled Belle époque, clarinettist Annelien Van Wauwe has teamed up with the Orchestra National de Lille and conductor Alexandre Bloch on Pentatone for a CD of rapturous music by Debussy, Pierné and Widor (both orchestrated by Jelle Tassyns), along with 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.  To accompany the recording, Annelien spent a day in Brussels to film this video amidst the city’s own architectural gems of the Belle époque.
