 Presto Music Podcast, Episode 15: Clarinet Chronicles with Julian Bliss

Julian BlissThis week I am joined by British clarinettist Julian Bliss for a brief history of the instrument, touching upon its earliest appearances in Mozart, through Krommer and Brahms, and its important role in the development of jazz in the first half of the twentieth century. The episode includes not one but two 'sneak peeks' of forthcoming recordings from Julian, one of which was recorded in his home studio during lockdown.
