James Campbell is Canada’s foremost clarinetist, an international virtuoso who has appeared with top-ranking orchestras, chamber groups, and performers throughout Canada, Europe and China. He has commissioned many Canadian works, some of which appear on this Centrediscs recording. This disc provides us with a wide range of works from the dramatic and haunting Mysterium coniunctionis to the mesmerizing electoacoustic work Crossroads.
« From the first few seconds of this Centrediscs CD, we know we’re in the presence of a master of the clarinet. Campbell’s execution is persuasive throughout, and collectors of the repertoire will not be disappointed. » – Alex Ross, Fanfare
