Following their acclaimed debut recording (Clarion Call - RES10127), the Berkeley Ensemble returns with a programme of chamber works by the British composer Lennox Berkeley, one of the two composers (father and son) after whom the group gets its name.

Featuring a number of world premiere recordings, the ensemble presents a selection of works that covers most of Berkeley’s creative life from the early Francophile clarinet 'Sonatine' written in Paris while a student of Nadia Boulanger to the inventive 'Introduction and Allegro' for double bass and piano. Also featured are the 'Three solo pieces' for viola and the large scale 'String Trio' Op. 19 and 'Sextet' Op. 47 for clarinet, horn and string quartet, and the emotive miniature 'In Memoriam Igor Stravinsky'.

This recording is supported by a grant from the Lennox Berkeley Society.
