Description: Dating from 1887, the clarinet sonata is a lovely, pastoral work, full of light and good spirits and it may have been the first duo sonata for clarinet of the Romantic period, predating Brahms, Reger and Saint-Saëns. This recording is dedicated to the memory of Alan Krueck, scholar and editor of both Draeseke and Raff and the founder of the AKCoburg label, who died suddenly late last year. A recording of this sonata appeared on that label in 2000 (02B004). Pierce-Aomori Duo, Daniel Barrett (cello).
