LISTEN MY SECRET FETISH

FOUR FETISHES FOR SOLO CLARINET

Richard Haynes, musical Wunderkind and exhibitionist par excellence, presented four fetishes for solo clarinet in very compromising circumstances. Audiences encountered extreme new sounds in physically demanding scenarios including:

Richard Barret’s interference for transgender contrabass clarinettist
Chris Dench’s the sadness of detail for clarinet and operating table
David Lang’s Press Release for leather and bass clarinet
And Breath Control by David Young for clarinet, watersports and 44-gallon drum
