Following the line of promoting the creation of new works for clarinet quartet, Barcelona Clarinet Players presents a new recording project with works by the clarinetist, saxophonist and composer Paquito D’Rivera.
This renowned artist has composed for Barcelona Clarinet Players "Fantasías Barcelónicas", a work inspired by the city of Barcelona and various illustrious personalities related to this, such as Carlos Ruiz Zafón, Tete Montoliu and Antoni Gaudí.
Additionally, this album will include six adaptations for clarinet quartet that the Cuban musician has made exclusively for them, such as "The Elephant and the Clown", "A Farewell Mambo", "Wapango", "Cuban Sharks", "Kites over Havana", and the renowned "La Fleur de Cayenne".
