W0037. CLARINET HIVE, w.Theodore Schoen, Laura Ardan, Ricardo Morales, James Ognibene, Timothy Paradise & Evan Ziporyn: Astor Piazzolla, John Harbison, Gunther Schuller, Vincert Persichetti & Evan Ziporyn. (Canada) Naxos 8.572264, recorded 2008. - 747313226474
"Taking its name from Evan Ziporyn's 'Hive', which grew out of the composer's experience as a beekeeper, this album brings together an engaging selection of pieces for solo clarinet and clarinet ensembles of various sizes. From Piazzolla's popular tangos to Harbison's Bach/Stravinsky-inspired 'Trio Sonata', Schuller's 'Duo Sonata' and Barker's 'Single Six', both jazz-inflected yet classical in spirit, to Persichetti's lyrical 'Serenade', 'Clarinet Hive' is an endlessly fascinating showcase of the clarinet's expressive and virtuosic potential, as well as its wide range of subtle sonorities."
